Let's use that delicious grilled chicken and put together a super stacked Greek inspired Cobb style salad for dinner! I love a Cobb salad and I love Greek food. This is a great marriage of styles that you can easily do in your home kitchen. With warm summer months upon us it's great to have cool dinner ideas that keep us out of the kitchen but keep the family fed and happy. This is one of those meals! Chock full of delicious grilled chicken, fresh and marinated veggies and a creamy homemade dressing. All you need is some bread to go on the side and you are ready to enjoy!

If you are not familiar with a Cobb salad, it doesn't have anything to do with corn. It is named for it's inventor, Bob Cobb. According to the Food Maven:

"One night in 1937, Bob Cobb, then owner of The Brown Derby, prowled hungrily in his restaurant's kitchen for a snack. Opening the huge refrigerator, he pulled out this and that: a head of lettuce, an avocado, some romaine, watercress, tomatoes, some cold chicken, a hard-boiled egg, chives, cheese and some old-fashioned French dressing. He started chopping. Added some crisp bacon -- swiped from a busy chef.

"The Cobb salad was born. It was so good, Sid Grauman (Grauman's Chinese Theatre), who was with Cobb that midnight, asked the next day for a 'Cobb Salad.' It was so good that it was put on the menu.

"Cobb's midnight invention became an overnight sensation with Derby customers, people like movie mogul Jack Warner, who regularly dispatched his chauffeur to pick up a carton of the mouth-watering salad."

Taking inspiration from Mr. Cobb, and from Greek cuisine, I present Greek Cobb salad! I started off with a bed of romaine lettuce and some of that delicious grilled and marinated chicken we made in a previous video you can see here: http://bit.ly/2URUEYe

I added in items that are found in the original Cobb salad such as tomatoes, onions and cucumber. To put the Greek spin on things I added some marinated veggies like artichoke hearts, mushrooms and roasted red peppers along with organic black olives and sliced pepperoncini. When everything was assembled I scattered a generous amount of crumbled feta cheese over the dish and left the rest on the side for anyone wishing to add more to their own serving. I served this with the creamy cucumber dressing that I shared in a previous video that you can see here: http://bit.ly/2UBDqyb

This is my take on a Cobb salad Greek style. I think this idea could be applied in many ways with many different ethnic cuisines. What would you do to a Cobb salad to make it your own? Tell me in the comments!

I hope you give this Greek Inspired Cobb salad a try sometime soon and I hope you love it!

Happy Eating!
