Recipe: Grilled Chicken Rainbow Cobb Salad

August 20, 2014 – Amanda Rettke here, from the blog I Am Baker. Today, we’re talking (bright and delicious!) entrée salads. One of my favorite meals in the world is a Cobb salad. It has a little of everything: meat (usually chicken), greens and vegetables. This particular version of a Cobb salad has all of that as well as some fruit and bacon!

Bacon. Oh, how I adore thee.

I laid it out here with all of the ingredients lined up and covering a bed of lettuce, but you could just as easily put all ingredients in a large bowl.

But I can’t help but love the way it looks when laid out in rainbow-color order. There is just something so beautiful and fresh about it all! And there is bacon. Did I mention I adore bacon?

The recipe is for a quick assembly, but do feel free to customize in a way that is most pleasing to you!

Of course, if you want to really have fun with your food, put it all in a jar! Not only is this beautiful, but convenient. Layer the ingredients in a jar, then head out for a picnic with your family.
