Buffalo Chicken Cobb Salad
Buffalo Chicken Cobb Salad … a BEAUTIFUL mix between a buffalo chicken salad and a Cobb salad, that will have your family begging to make again and again!
Hey all, Jessica from Fantabulosity here again! I’m a sucker for a fantastic, salad. Chopped romaine, endless toppings, beautiful colors, rich and “herby” dressings… oh, I could eat one every stinking day.
I sort of have a current crush on Cobb salads, and buffalo chicken. So while in my kitchen the other day, thinking of what to make for dinner, I decided on a whim to combine the two, making a Buffalo Chicken Cobb Salad. Best.Decision.Ever.Made.
If you follow me on Facebook, then you’ve more than likely seen one of my “hot-mess,” Facebook “live,” videos, of me cooking in the kitchen. I love shortcuts, and if it’s pre-made/pre-chopped, it’s going in my cart. If you’re the type that likes to make/cut everything from scratch, go for it! But for now, I’ll show you how I cut corners in my kitchen.
This Buffalo Chicken Cobb Salad is so easy to make!
I even had a bit of luck at the grocery store, and found pre-cooked, cut, and “buffalo style” chicken. (Although I like to kick it up a notch and add a bit more hot sauce.)
The beautiful thing about this recipe, is that if you like an ingredient more than one of the others, mix-it up and go crazy, or take away what you don’t like! I tend to go heavy on the buffalo chicken and hot sauce, myself.
This recipe makes a large salad, and fed our small family of four, for dinner!
Buffalo Chicken Cobb Salad
Buffalo Chicken Cobb Salad: A BEAUTIFUL mix between a buffalo chicken salad, and a cobb salad, that will have your family begging to make again and again!
1 Bag Romaine Lettuce (I used a bag of pre-chopped romaine), chopped in to small pieces
1/4 cup Chopped Bacon (I used the packaged real bacon bits to save on time)
1/4 of a Red Onion, chopped
2 Chopped hard-boiled eggs
2 cups chopped cooked "buffalo style" chicken
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
1 cup sliced cherry tomatoes
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Dash of hot sauce (optional)
Toss the chicken in hot sauce, before placing on salad, if you prefer a spicy flavor.
Cover the platter with your chopped romaine, and arrange each remaining ingredient, in single lines, for a "wow," presentation factor.
Before serving, you can toss the salad to allow each serving to receive equal amounts of heavenly goodness.
For a dressing, I’ll usually add a fun-flavorful dressing, like “fiesta ranch,” “spicy ranch, “avocado-lime,” or simply the Hidden Valley Ranch that you can make at home, in the packet and using buttermilk. (There’s nothing like it.)
If you love this easy, summer-friendly dinner recipe, you’ll enjoy these too!
