Ingredients Needed to Make This Summer Sausage Cobb Salad
Lettuce: You can use any type of lettuce you choose here! I like to use chopped romaine or butterhead lettuce.
Tomatoes: I like to use Roma tomatoes here, but you can also use cherry tomatoes!
Avocado: Make sure to add the avocado shortly before serving so it does not turn brown!
Sausage: I highly recommend looking for sausage with very simple ingredients and no fillers.
Dairy-Free Feta: Because cheese makes everything better!
Red Onion: I like to thinly slice the red onion!
Egg: The hard boiled eggs can be prepped in advance. If you are not able to have egg, feel free to add extra sausage.
