My love for salads runs deep. So does my love for all things Mexican food. I've already made you a Chicken Fajita Cobb Salad, and 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!

  1. this looks fantastic....but I am looking for the Mex Chop Salad recipe, not Cobb. Help?

  2. I don't like shrimp -- do you have another protein suggestion? Could you treat chicken or another meat the same way?
