BBQ Chicken Cobb Salad with Herb Yogurt Dressing
When you think of summer what do you think of? Pool days, staying up late, going on a beach vacation, BBQ's in the backyard and the smell of the grill. All the goodness! BBQ Chicken Cobb Salad with Herb Yogurt Dressing is a salad that wraps up those smells and feelings in one yummy bite!
This is my favorite time of year for food. Fresh veggies from the garden, juicy watermelon dripping down your chin and ripe berries bursting with flavor you forgot they had over the dreary winter months. All you need is a grill for your kitchen in the summers and everyone is happy!
The food is light, flavorful and everyone has their favorite things in the summer that they can't get enough to eat.

My sweet husband is the grill master around here and never lets the chicken get dry on the grill - bless him! I marinated this chicken with Kentucky Bourbon BBQ sauce I found at Kroger (it is delicious!) but any of your favorite BBQ sauces will work.
The base of the salad is tender butter bib lettuce. If you can't find this, any lettuce you prefer will do, but the light tender flavor of this I think perfectly complements each flavor.
Top it with hard boiled eggs, crisp bacon, juicy cherry tomatoes, and fresh mozzarella. Prep the eggs and bacon ahead of time so you can just assemble and go once the chicken is gilled and ready.
We can't forget about this dressing!
Oh, the dressing! If you aren't making your own dressing then you are missing out! It is unbelievable easy, once you do it once you will never go back to store bought. Add greek yogurt, olive oil, lemon juice, and all the herbs & spices to a blender. Blend on high, taste to see if it needs more salt & pepper and
So what are you waiting on?! Fire up that grill, invite your friends over and stay up way
