This is the most amazing cobb salad and it is so easy to make! It’s loaded with egg, bacon, chicken, roasted corn, ripe tomatoes, cheese, and avocado.
Cobb salad has always been a favorite of mine. It’s incredibly flavorful, filling and really easy to customize. You can grab all of those odds and ends you have in your fridge and combine them into one delicious meal.
When making a cobb salad I generally stick to the same ingredients: avocado, cheese, tomato, chicken, corn, bacon, and egg. However, I’m always playing around with the method in which I prep them.
Sometimes my husband fries the egg if we’re in a hurry, or I grab leftover rotisserie chicken and shredded cheese. Again, it’s just a matter what we have on hand and how much time we have to prepare it. And if I’m being completely honest, it rarely looks as pretty as it does in these pictures. What can I say though, sometime I like to glam things up a bit for the old blog. ☺
P.S. I recently started sprinkling sliced green onion over ALL my salads and I have to say, it has always been a good choice. It adds that tangy and crunch without being super noticeable. ?
This is also a great meal for picky eaters because they can choose which “toppings” they want on their individual portions. For example, neither of my kids enjoy cherry tomatoes but they’ll eat everything else. I don’t have to make a separate meal for them.
It’s ONE for ALL!! ?? Mom win right there!
So grab a bottle of quality ranch dressing (or whip up a homemade version) and make this amazing cobb salad ASAP. It’s our go-to summer salad, I’m sure it will become yours too!
