Summer Cobb Salad


This Summer Cobb Salad is a fantastically fresh and bright salad which will bring a rainbow of color to your table. I can never make this salad for my brother because he has a phobia of mixing berries or fruit with savory ingredients but I am the complete opposite – I love that combination of sweet and savory which this salad does so well.

I start by making a zingy garlic and lime dressing. I shake up my dressing in a mason jar and if any is leftover I refrigerate it and use it on another salad a day or two later. Then grill the chicken and assemble the salad ingredients in lines so that it resembles a rainbow. Enjoy!

To make my Summer Cobb Salad, you will need the following ingredients:

So, how do you make Summer Cobb Salad?

Steps to make Summer Cobb Salad


Prepare the dressing


Place the oil, lime zest and juice, garlic, honey, cream, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon ground pepper into an empty jar. Tighten the lid and shake vigorously until creamy and smooth. Chill in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.


Heat the grill pan


Preheat the grill pan on a medium-high heat.


Season and oil the chicken


Rub olive oil, salt and pepper into the chicken until coated evenly.




Place the chicken on the grill pan and cook for 5 minutes on each side. Remove from the grill pan and allow to rest for 5 minutes before chopping it into bite-sized pieces.


Assemble the salad


Start by spreading the romaine over a large platter or salad bowl. Arrange the rest of the toppings in lines on the lettuce bed so it resembles a rainbow.


Dress the salad


Just before serving, dress the salad with the creamy lime and garlic dressing.



Serve the salad with freshly baked bread to mop up and extra dressing.
