Grilled Chicken Cobb Salad

Grilled Chicken Cobb Salad

I don’t know about where you live, but it’s been super hot and humid here. I love that it’s hot — especially since I spend most of my day as a Popsicle. You could hang meat in my office.

But the humidity? Ugh. I could definitely do without it. My A/C is working overtime and I have electric bill to prove it.

To beat the heat and cut back on my electric usage I’ve been avoiding the stove. Enter my favorite salad: Cobb Salad with Green Goddess Dressing.

I wrote about this YEARS ago and it’s still in heavy rotation.

Is it wrong to look forward to a salad all week? Not when it’s this salad. Blue cheese, grilled chicken, avocado and tomatoes — can we say YUM? There may or may not have been a bit of crumbled bacon in there, too.

I skipped the watercress because it’s hard to find near me (have to travel a ways to Whole Foods to get it) and ended up with a mix of chopped romaine and the tail ends of some bagged butter lettuce mix.

If you make nothing else, make this dressing. Really. It’s a homemade, healthy, creamy dressing that may change your life.
