Winter "Cobb" Salad
with cinnamon maple chickpeas, pears, pecans, avocado, pomegranate seeds and roasted butternut squash. ~vegan, gluten free
While this isn't truly a Cobb salad because it doesn't have bacon, cheese and get the idea.  A true dinner salad that combines protein, healthy fats, fiber, green leafy lettuce and much, much more. And just look at those bright colors!
