“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?”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare dressing by combining all the ingredients. Whisk well. Set aside.
  2. Prepare 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.
  4. Just 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.
  5. NOTE: You can also layer the salad mixture in a trifle bowl for a colorful presentation.
