Vegan Cobb Salad from Baconish by Leinana Two MoonsA traditional Cobb salad includes chicken, bacon, egg, and cheese. Not exactly vegan fare. But Leinana Two Moons has created a vegan-friendly version that is incredibly flavorful, colorful, and totally satisfying. This is no wimpy side dish; this vegan Cobb salad is a main course.
