Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Caribbean Cobb Salad is a main course that serves 4. One serving contains 284 calories, 22g of protein, and 16g of fat. For $2.14 per serving, this recipe covers 30% of your daily requirements of vitamins and minerals. If you have cherry tomoto, cheese, hardboiled eggs, and a few other ingredients on hand, you can make it. It is a good option if you're following a gluten free diet. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes roughly 45 minutes. It is brought to you by spoonacular user gvsanthu10. Caribbean Cobb Salad with Fire-Roasted Pineapple Vinaigrette, Spring Cobb Salad with Raspberry Basil Vinaigrette + Mason Jar Salad, and Spring Cobb Salad with Raspberry Basil Vinaigrette + Mason Jar Salad are very similar to this recipe.

Chardonnay, Gruener Veltliner, and Sauvignon Blanc are my top picks for Cobb Salad. Sauvignon Blanc and Gruner Veltliner both have herby notes that complement salads with enough acid to match tart vinaigrettes, while a Chardonnay can be a good pick for creamy salad dressings. One wine you could try is Chamisal Vineyards Monterey Chardonnay. It has 4.2 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 20 dollars.

Chamisal Vineyards Monterey Chardonnay

Heat grill. Coat the chicken breasts liberally with the jerk seasoning and cook the chicken on both sides until cooked through, approximately 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil. Allow the chicken to rest for 10 minutes while you prepare the rest of the salad.

In a large bowl, add the torn romaine hearts and top with the bell pepper, mango, avocado, bacon and scallions. Cut the chicken into cubes and add to the salad. Sprinkle the salad with the macadamia nuts and serve with the Fire-Roasted Pineapple Vinaigrette on the side or serve with your favorite dressing.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Frozen (and potentially even canned) fruit and vegetables contain as much?if not more?vitamins than fresh versions that have been sitting around the supermarket too long. So don't hesitate to buy canned or frozen goods if your budget or the season doesn't allow for fresh!

  • When buying canned fruit, buy fruit packed in fruit juice and check the label to avoid added sugar. The fruit is sweet enough, it doesn't need any help!

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

  • Avocados are one of the "clean fifteen", so you don't have to buy them organic if you don't want to spend the extra dough.

Cooking Tips

  • If you're buying an avocado to use for dinner tonight, make sure you choose a ripe one! Find an avocado that is soft enough to press your fingertips into. If it's too firm, it's not ripe. If it's almost smooshy, it's too ripe. The perfect avocado can be hard to find in stores, so you might have to buy your avocados in advance and ripen them at home. To speed up the ripening process, put the avocados in a paper bag with an apple or banana. It really works!

  • To get perfect hard-boiled eggs, start by storing the eggs with the tip of the egg pointing down. This will help center the yolk. Once it is time to make the eggs, put the eggs in a pot with cold water and bring it to a boil. Once you have a rolling boil, remove the pot from the heat and cover with a lid. After 12 minutes, drain the pot and rinse the eggs in cold water. To peel, crack the egg shell on all sides and roll it with your hand to thoroughly break up the shell.

Green Tips

  • Bell peppers are unfortunately on the "dirty dozen" list compiled by the Environmental Working Group (EWG). You might want to buy them organic when you can.
