Cobb salads are probably my second favorite kind of salad behind Caesar salad. I love having bacon and hard-boiled eggs as a source of protein. I also loved that this salad went the Tex Mex route and there was pepper jack cheese and corn chips. The BBQ ranch dressing also surprised me quite a bit. All-in-all, this was a well-rounded salad and it's perfect for Taco Tuesdays!

What you need:
For the salad:
  • 1/2 head iceberg or romaine lettuce, shredded
  • 2 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 8 oz. block Pepper Jack cheese, cut into cubes
  • 5 slices bacon, cooked and crubmled
  • 1/2 medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can corn, drained
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Frito corn chips
For the dressing:
  • 2/3 cup Ranch dressing
  • 1/4 cup BBQ sauce of your choosing
  1. Toss all salad ingredients together except cilantro and corn chips.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together dressing and BBQ sauce. 
  3. Divide salad into serving dishes and top with dressing, cilantro, and corn chips.
