Castello Summer of Blue — Chicken and Blue Cheese Cobb Salad with Spicy Buttermilk Dressing
Recipe Type: Main
Serves: 2 servings
Grilled chicken is served in a Cobb salad, drizzled with a spicy buttermilk and topped with a creamy blue cheese. A cool salad that is great for these last summer days, but hearty enough for a crisp fall afternoon.

  • 4 cups mixed greens
  • 1 cooked chicken breast, cubed
  • ¼ cup corn, grilled
  • ¼ cup cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 2 tablespoons Castello Burger Blue Cheese, crumbled
  • ½ avocado, diced
Spicy Buttermilk Ranch Dressing
  • ¼ cup milk

Chicken Cobb Salad
  1. To assemble the salad fill two bowls with mixed greens.
  2. Top with chicken, corn, tomatoes, bacon, blue cheese and avocado.
  3. Serve immediately with a drizzle of spicy buttermilk ranch dressing!
Spicy Buttermilk Ranch Dressing
  1. Combine milk and lemon juice in a small bowl. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Add in mayonnaise, sour cream, cayenne, dill, ground mustard and hot sauce. Whisk to combine.
  3. Season with salt and pepper and place in the refrigerator until ready to serve. I find it tastes better when it has time to sit, at least an hour.
