My love for salads runs deep. So does my love for all things Mexican food. So it probably comes as no surprise that this Mexican Cobb Salad is near and dear to my heart!
Loaded with shredded romaine lettuce, freshly grated cheese, black beans, corn, guacamole, pico and spicy shrimp – it’s one of those complete meal salads that you’ll absolutely adore! Plus it’s healthy!! Well, for the most part, unless you sometimes pull a “gaby” and eat it with tortilla chips. Then the health factor kinda flies out the wind. #sorrynotsorry I’m just being honest 🙂
You can serve it up with cilantro vinaigrette if you want too! I find that between the pico and the guac, I don’t need an extra dressing… but I’m just covering your basis cause I love ya!

Now that’s a nice salad!
That a serious salad that I need to make!
Great dinner salad!
STUNNING. This needs to be in my dinner rotation!
omg. we were thinking on the same wave length today 🙂 Awesome salad!!!
It seems to me that the lemon juice would cause the oil to splatter. I think I’d add it afterwards.
Oh man, this looks scrumptious! Serve me up a big bowl, please!!
I think I could eat this everyday! Love the cilantro vinaigrette!
What a gorgeous salad! It looks perfect for the season. Thanks for sharing, Gaby!

Mexican Cobb Salad serves how many?
Are the corn and beans left at room temp. and not cooked?
correct! raw corn is my fav. and if you prefer the beans warm, be my guest!!
I don’t like shrimp — do you have another protein suggestion? Could you treat chicken or another meat the same way?
chicken would be great!
this looks fantastic….but I am looking for the Mex Chop Salad recipe, not Cobb. Help?
it’s one in the same!
