South Western Cobb Salad

What a great salad to serve to your family after a busy day of rushing. Sure to build energy back up and provide protien that is so much needed.


For the salad

  • 1 small head romaine lettuce, chopped (6 cups total)
  • 1 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup cooked chicken breast (or use additional black beans)
  • 1/3 red onion or red bell pepper, finely diced (1/2 cup)
  • 1 avacado, diced
  • 1 cup corn kernels, fresh, frozen, or canned (thawed, if frozen, drained and rinsed if canned)
  • 1/2 cup diced or shredded Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese

For the dressing

  • 1/2 avacado
  • 3 tablespoons low-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup lime juice (1-2 limes)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Hot pepper sauce, to taste (optional)
  1. Put the lettuce in a large serving bowl, and top with the rest of the salad ingredients.
  2. Mash the 1/2 avacado and whisk it in a medium bowl with the remaining dressing ingredients.
  3. Toss the salad with about 1/2 the dressing, then add more to taste.
