Holy smokes, you guys! Just look at this massive, loaded salad.

Those vibrant colors… and imagine the various textures, from crispy bacon to juicy chicken, from crisp sweet peppers to creamy avocado, from crunchy radishes to soft asparagus, just to name a few!

The very first time I tried Marzetti® Vineyard Dressing Balsamic Cabernet, I immediately thought of cobb salad because the classic version of this versatile garden salad is usually dressed with red wine vinaigrette. This unique dressing inspired by the vine is just what I needed to add that special zing to my gorgeous spring salad.

What I love most about cobb salad is that you can customize it to your own liking. Whatever which way you decide! Load it with everything you love, and/or whatever is in season. Salad doesn’t have to be boring. In fact, it should be exciting! Taste the array of delicious Marzetti® Vineyard Dressings and let it inspire you to build the most gorgeous, satisfying salad in your own kitchen.

My version here is just for inspiration! Be creative and focus on all the fresh produce YOU love, because the dressing is already taken care of for you. Let me show you my inspiration for this salad.

Classic cobb salad starts with crisp lettuce (I’m using romaine lettuce here, but I also adore butter lettuce), tomatoes, avocado, and green onion. Other usual suspects are chicken–grilled is my favorite, bacon (yes!), hard-boiled eggs and blue cheese. And to keep it in season, I added crisp and spicy radishes, asparagus and mini sweet peppers. Don’t they just scream SPRING???

The finishing touch: well-balanced, smooth and creamy dressing adds perfect tanginess and sweetness, that pairs beautifully with blue cheese and all the fresh veggies in the bowl.

And since bikini season is just around the corner, I know you’ll be happy to indulge in such fresh and flavorful salad. Now, go on and get creative with all the fresh produce and Marzetti® Vineyard Dressings inspired by the vine!
