Smoked Chicken Cobb Salad

A big Cobb salad makes for a great side dish. Or main dish for that matter. I had some smoked chicken left over and decided to make it the center of this smoked chicken Cobb salad. Of course you can go crazy with a Cobb with whatever meats and veggies or fruits you want. That’s the beauty of a Cobb. No rules. No judgement.

I was feeling particularly artsy, so I waffle cut some radish and cucumbers for this salad. It’s nice to always do something a little different. It doesn’t have to be big, it can be something as subtle as a waffle cut. People will remember it and it really didn’t take any extra effort.

Whenever I’m making Cobb salads for dinner, I walk through the product section at the grocery store and grab whatever looks good, and can be chopped. Then I add a protein or two (cubed chicken, ham or turkey always go well), and some crunch (bacon, crumbled chips, croutons). Canned beans are also a great addition to a Cobb salad. The end result is always fantastic.
