Layered Shrimp Cobb Salad Recipe

Cook, cool, peel and slice the eggs; a beautiful addition to this Layered Shrimp Cobb Salad Recipe!

For future potlucking, this is delicious to bring to a party. For today–in this quarantine world–it’s a fresh healthy dinner!

Also, our house is slowly coming together. It was a mad rush a few months ago, to get into it (so we could move out of our old one). Now the projects are coming along, as we just finished staining our decks.

I’ll be doing a posts on different parts of the house soon! Today … I’m giving the details of our entry way accent wall!

Eating a layered salad

We’re eating a lot of salads. I have to say, in the midst of plenty, we’re a little more thankful for every meal we put on the table these days. I can only imagine how different our world will be … and our homes and kitchen tables will be in the months to come, as we’ve all been forced to be home. Home, cooking every meal for our families.

If you’re like me, and love homemade Best Thousand Island Dressing, then for sure make your own. But it’s optional to buy premade for this recipe.

Ingredients for a Shrimp Cobb Salad

  • Butter leaf lettuce
  • Wild Alaska shrimp
  • Hard cooked eggs
  • Avocado
  • Black olives
  • Tomatoes
  • Cooked geen beans
  • Purple onion
  • Bacon
  • Roquefort cheese
  • Thousand Island dressing
  • Fresh basil and parsley

How to assemble and serve the Cobb Salad

I love a glass trifle bowl for salad, especially to bring to a party or potluck. They are so pretty, and really show the beautiful colors of food!

The best way to serve this kind of salad is to dump it into a large bowl right before it’s time to eat.

Add the dressing.

Gently toss together (to not break up the shrimp, eggs, etc:)

Accent entry wall

I’m dreaming up so many ideas for some of the spaces we haven’t touched yet. I’m a dreamer; my husband is a doer. [Above, our entry way plus Alder the Whoodle, before we added the accent wall.]

While we were in New York back in February, he surprised us with this accent entry wall. Oh, how I love his creativity with a little bit of wood :)

With so many options and ideas flowing in his brain, I’m glad he went with it.

Our homes are a sanctuary. I know you feel the same way about yours!

I plan to write a post with all the updates that we’ve done since December, and I’m grateful for all of you who’ve been along on the journey!

We’re about doing it ourselves, and not worried about making our home a showcase, but a cozy space. So as projects unfold, it’s been fun to share on Instagram.

How to make an accent wall

  1. Use 2 sheets of 4×8 x 1/8 utility plywood, which cost a little less than $24 (total).
  2. Next, apply two coats of dark walnut stain and two coats of clear top coat in a matte finish.
  3. Let the wood dry, then cut into strips: 4 inches and 1.75 inches.
  4. Cut to length, then use a 6 foot level that is one inch thick as a spacer between boards.
  5. Adhere wood to wall with two inch brad nails.

We love how it’s only an 1/8 inch thick. The wall makes a statement, but it’s also nice and clean, with a minimalistic feel.

Welcoming people into your home

When you welcome others into your home, they are invited to your sacred and safe space. For us, people usually come to visit us and enjoy a meal at the same time!

Our homes should inspire and be warm and welcoming, not just to others, but to us. It’s why we call it “our home!”
