Weeknight Dinner: Chopped Cobb Salad

Print Friendly and PDF
This is the perfect summer meal.  Our kitchen is so small that when it gets to be this hot and humid out, just standing there to fix a sandwich is torturous.  John and I have been loving easy and simple dishes that require little to no cooking.  It's almost sacreligious of a food blogger to say that, isn't it??  But the truth is, I don't know anyone who wants to sweat making dinner.  It's just unseemly and a great way to lose your appetite.

Now that I've talked all about sweat, let's talk about this dish (if your appetite is still holding on).  A cobb salad is one of my absolute favorite salads. We have a cute little tavern right around the corner from my office that I literally take everyone that I meet for work and for personal life to lunch.  They have this delicious kale salad that I get because I'm trying to be good (ugh).  But, every few times I go, I make it a point to get their cobb salad.

Everything is chopped perfectly and tastes delicious.  In fact, I'm practically drooling while I think about it.  Let's be honest, the salad is practically an afterthought after all the tasty ingredients that go into it.  But it's one of those perfect salads that can really fill you up for dinner, especially if you're good about not adding too much bacon!
Chopped Cobb Salad
Serves:  4
1/2 pound chicken breast
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 head iceberg lettuce, chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 large cucumber, diced
4 slices bacon, crumbled
1 avocado, diced
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
1/2 cup blue cheese dressing

Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.  Grill 5-7 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.  Dice and set aside.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumbers.  Spoon into 4 bowls.  Top each bowl evenly with bacon, avocado, diced chicken, blue cheese crumbles, and blue cheese dressing.

Serve immediately.
