What makes it light and Summery? The lemon roasted chicken, grilled corn on the cob and fresh Summer vegetables, of course. No worries about turning the oven on in the Summer. I made that chicken in my pressure cooker. Summer begs for the addition of fresh veggies and light dishes. There’s another reason I love this salad. I’ve started half marathon training and need easy power packed  meals.

As a busy mom, I have a tendency not to eat enough during the day. Luckily, this salad is extremely easy to put together and is packed with nutrition. It has protein, good fats and tons of vitamins and minerals. If I need some extra protein I add edamame. Okay… are you looking at me sideways? You’re thinking “C’mon El a salad.” Yes, a salad.

Don’t worry this is a salad that will wow your taste buds. No plain ‘ol iceburg lettuce. We’re stepping this salad up a notch with tons of flavors and textures. It keeps the classics, like bacon, boiled eggs and avocado.  But I’ve added some other delicious summery twists in here.

Are you are fan of Ranch Dressing? It’s not favorite of mine, and since I’m trying to keep this Summer Chicken Cobb Salad nice and light it has dijon vinaigrette dressing. Of course, if you like ranch dressing use it. Either way this salad will be tasty and filling. Ready to excite those tastebuds with a salad? C’mon.
