Southwestern Cobb Salad is made with a spicy cilantro lime vinaigrette. This easy cobb salad recipe is out of this world! The vinaigrette is something I make almost once a week, and this salad is one of my favorites to put it on!



Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette

  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped jalapeno
  • 2 cups cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  • 1/2 pound boneless chicken breasts

  • 1 cup grape tomatoes sliced in half
