Friends, today I’m sharing a delicious recipe from my friend Jessica’s brand new cookbook: Everyday Dinners! We made the Honey Mustard Chickpea Cobb Salad (Board) recipe, and served it on the 20-inch The Big Board.

Chickpea Cobb Salad Board

It’s a deconstructed cobb salad made with chickpeas and it’s SOooooooo good!

How to make Honey Mustard Vinaigrette

Whisk together the ingredients in a jar; keep in the fridge. It’s the best salad dressing!

  • Honey
  • Dijon mustard
  • Garlic cloves
  • Pinch of kosher salt and black pepper

How to serve Honey Mustard Chickpea Cobb Salad

Arrange the food in rows.

Make the dressing in a jar; shake and drizzle over the salad right before serving.

Or, everyone can serve themselves, and then drizzle their own dressing.

Serve with hot crunchy bread.

Thoughts on hospitality

The word “hospitality” seems to be a scary word for many. In our busyness, we are fearful of commitment, of something taking us away from “our” time. Or we think hospitality only means hosting a party. But the blessing of hospitality can be as simple as taking a piece of leftover cake or pie to your neighbor. It can be preparing a dinner board and bringing it to a family who moved in next door. It can be making sandwiches for needy folks once a week. It’s this kind of hospitality that doesn’t have anything to do with whether you have a house or the state of your home.

If you have some easy go-to recipes, hospitality is much easier!

This last week, we brought this salad to some friends for dinner. It’s also great to “bring your hospiatlity with you.”

  • Cobb Salad
  • 3 large eggs
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 14 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • ½ cup chopped cucumber
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • ¼ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • Honey Mustard Vinaigrette
  • 3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced or pressed
  • Pinch of kosher salt and black pepper
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil


  • Place the eggs in a pot and cover with cold water. Bring the water to a boil over medium heat and boil for 1 minute. Turn off the heat and cover the pot. Let sit for 10 minutes, then drop the eggs into an ice bath. Once cool, peel and slice the eggs.
  • While the eggs cook, heat a skillet over medium-low heat. Add the bacon and cook until crisp and crunchy. Remove it and lay it on a paper towel to drain any excess grease. Once cool, crumble the bacon.
  • To assemble the salad, place the chickpeas, tomatoes, cucumber, avocado and cheese in segments on a plate. Add in the bacon and the eggs. Drizzle with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette and top with fresh herbs.
  • Make the dressing:
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, honey, mustard garlic, salt and pepper, continuing to whisk while streaming in the olive oil. This dressing stays great in the fridge in a sealed container for a week or so.
  • To serve on a board:
  • Assemble the food items in rows on the board.
  • Serve with the dressing on the side (or you can drizzle right before serving).
