Mediterranean Cobb Salad - 15g Carbs, 5g Fiber

From: Taste of Home June/July 2014
I'm a huge fan of taking classic dishes and adding some flair to them. I also like to change up heavier dishes, like the classic Cobb salad. I've traded out typical chicken for crunchy falafel that's just as satisfying. — Jenn Tidwell, Fair Oaks, California
