Found this recipe in a new weekly magazine published by Good Housekeeping called Quick and Simple. I added a few ingredients to the salad that I felt enhanced the recipe, namely cheese because the original recipe surprisingly didn't call for it. What's a Cobb Salad without cheese, even a non-traditional Cobb recipe?
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon Mexican oregano
- 1 garlic clove, finely minced
- 1 head romaine lettuce or 1 head mixed greens, rinsed, patted dry
- 8 cherry tomatoes, quartered
- 2 cups boneless skinless chicken, cut into bite-size chunks
- 1 (15 -19 ounce) can black beans, drained
- 2 small cucumbers, peeled, seeded and thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup roasted corn
- 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced
- 3/4 cup Cotija cheese
- 1Prepare dressing by combining all the ingredients. Whisk well. Set aside.
- 2Prepare the avocado and after cutting into slices, drizzle with some lime juice to prevent browning.
- 3(If using romaine lettuce, cut into 1/2" strips.) Place the lettuce into a large serving bowl. Arrange the cotija cheese, chicken, beans, and the remaining vegetables, except for the avocado, in rows over the lettuce.
- 4Just before serving toss the salad with dressing. Place the avocados around the inner rim of the salad bowl. Garnish with lime slices and cilantro sprigs. Serve immediately.
- 5NOTE: You can also layer the salad mixture in a trifle bowl for a colorful presentation.
