breakfast cobb salad

A few weekends ago, we visited Short Order for some burgers.  Short Order is Nancy Silverton’s newish LA restaurant focusing on a local, organic and artisan burgers.  We had some delicious cocktails but unfortunately the burgers were pretty disappointing.

All was not lost however as we spotted a Breakfast Cobb Salad on the brunch menu and I knew instantly that it would be on our plate some weekend morning very soon.

It isn’t out of the norm for us to have side salads with breakfast, but I’ve never thought of making it the main event.

I have no idea why…

It was delicious. Satisfying, yet light and felt like the perfect combination between breakfast and lunch. I have a feeling it will become a regular weekend breakfast for us.

Full of greens, healthy fats and tons of flavor.

Why not?

      Yeah, we just weren’t impressed with them, especially considering they were $13-14 each, no sides. They weren’t awful, just not as good as we had hoped! They had some non-burger sandwiches that sounded really good though.
