It’s only May and I’ve already reached the point where all I want to each is chilled foods. Fresh-from-the-fridge cucumber slices, icy oysters on the half shell, frozen fruit pops, and salads. All. The. Salads.

I can’t even imagine how things are going to be once it’s approximately 50000 degrees in Florida (a likely guesstimate, I’m sure!). By then I’ll probably want to live off of nothing but ice cubes.

Kidding!!! I love food way too much, y’all know that! Besides, knowing me I’ll probably crave something random like baked spaghetti on the absolute hottest day of the year. That’s why they invented AC right?

Anywho! The salad train is still making it’s rounds through my kitchen and I have a delicious new combo you’ve got to try: a classic cobb salad with a delicious Mediterranean twist! It was inspired by my tasty Quinoa Tabbouleh and completely rocked my afternoon lunch game.

Greek Cobb Salad

You can sass things up with crumbled bacon if you can’t imagine your cobb salad without it, but I skipped cooking entirely. Well, unless you count the 15 minute pressure cooker chicken breast I threw together in record time… which is almost too easy to merit the title of cooking!

I’ll be back to profess my love for my Instant Pot with a few pressure cooker recipes for ya super soon, but until then, let’s get our salad on!

You can easily use leftover or store bought rotisserie chicken as well, which are both a great way to avoid your oven or grill on a busy day. You can also use this salad suggestion as a canvas for any and all leftovers chilling in your fridge. Snag that half-eaten container of hummus and that stray tomato and sass up this salad with any of your favorite add-ins!

Vegetarian? Skip the chicken and add some fresh sliced tomatoes and olives. Done deal!

      We loved this vegetarian. I didn’t have tabouleah, so I made quinoa, stirred in tahini, chopped parsley and squeezed a lemon. I zested the rind over chickpeas roasted and sprinkled zaatar over them. I hope to add the avocado next time, though timing when it is right with all the other fresh ingredients may best my organizational capacities.

      perfect, I know what I’ll be having for dinner. I just have to stop by Sam’s to get a rotisserie chicken, I have everything else on hand. This looks yummy.

      • Thanks Ella! Hope you adore it 🙂

          As I thought, this was a perfect salad, great for a busy mommy during the week. I’ve passed along my love of salads to my 4 year old and she gobbled it up, too!
          Thanks again from a new follower!

          • Ella you’re the sweetest! Thanks for stopping back over to leave a review + I’m so glad y’all loved it! 🙂

    • This looks absolutely amazing! I want to make it for lunch!

      This is what happens when my two favorite salads mate. I love it, and I’d die for that creamy Greek dressing. Bring on the feta!

    • Looks delicious! I’ll probably wait until the baby is born to eat salads (I’ve been told to avoid anything raw) but I’m definitely saving this recipe for future! Thanks so much for sharing 🙂
