Easy, Week Night Southwest Cobb Salad

This easy Cobb salad recipe combines the traditional Cobb ingredients with a Southwest twist! Amplify the flavor with corn, avocado, black beans, and one of my favorite Greek yogurt salad dressings – Bolthouse Farms Cilantro Avocado. It is an easy weeknight recipe, especially if you cook the bacon & chicken ahead of time.

And if you need something sweet to finish your meal, I highly recommend making my Grandma’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe (with sprinkles!). This is a favorite in my house – crispy, crunchy edges with a chewy middle! I add sprinkles to make it even more fun for the kids.
