BBQ Chicken Cobb Salad

  • Romaine lettuce torn or chopped
  • Grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Avocado, chopped
  • Hard boiled eggs, chopped
  • Blue cheese crumbles (can substitute feta)
  • Bacon bits (you can use any meat for "bacon")
  • Mushrooms, sliced
  • Cucumber, chopped
  • Chicken (BBQ breasts with your favorite BBQ sauce, then cut into bite-sized pieces.  Then coat chicken pieces with additional BBQ sauce so that all sides are covered.)
  • Blue Cheese dressing or another preferred dressing (my favorite is Blue Cheese Vinaigrette by Litehouse sold in the refrigerated section)

  1. On top of the bed of lettuce, lay each ingredient in a "stripe".
  2. I recommend either keeping the BBQ chicken warm or reheating before placing on the salad.
  3. Use dressing as desired.

This is one of my favorite meals for the summer.  It's fresh, delicious, and filling.  My hubby who isn't too into having a salad for a dinner entree, really enjoys this as well.  You can substitute to your liking and/or what you have on hand.  It's relatively easy to prepare and a definite crowd pleaser. Enjoy!

  1. This salad is hands-down my favorite summer meal. It seriously makes my mouth water! Jess, what kind of BBQ sauce do you like best?
