Hello and welcome to another Sunday Supper event! This one is SUMMER DINNER SALAD RECIPES. Corn is one of those things that has always screamed summer to me. I grew up in the middle of nowhere Minnesota surrounded by cornfields. It was a normal occurrence for me to walk to main street (a block away from my house) and buy sweet corn from the back of someone's truck.

This cobb salad comes from Chrissy Teigen's cookbook, Cravings. I adore it. I find it rare that a cookbook would have all the recipes that I would want to make and eat. I definitely find it disappointing when I get a cookbook that I am really excited about and then I only want to make three or four recipes in it. Cravings is a treasure trove of amazing food. Chrissy's Snapchat is one of my favorite things, purely for her food snaps.

In the cookbook, this Cobb Salad recipe comes with avocado and honey mustard ranch dressing as well. I believe I had mine with a citrus vinaigrette, so just top yours with whatever you want to top it with. Per Chrissy's suggestion, I made my bacon in the oven topped with garlic and it was amazing. If you're looking for a new cookbook, I highly recommend Cravings. Everything I have made from it so far has been so delicious! Plus her anecdotes throughout the cookbook are just absolutely hilarious.
