The Cobb Salad is a total MVP of the salad world. Not only is it full of fresh veggies, but it also contains ample protein from chicken, bacon, and cheese to keep you satiated.

In this recipe, we're kicking the flavors of a traditional cobb salad into high gear with the addition of warming Southwestern spices like cumin, chili, oregano and cayenne. 

We've swapped bleu cheese with rich, crumbled cotija, and added the sweetness of fresh corn to cut through the heat of the dressing. 

It all comes together quickly with the help of pre-made ranch dressing, and requires very few dishes to be dirtied—which of course we love.
