Panera Chopped Chicken Cobb Salad


The Panera chopped chicken Cobb salad recipe takes the standard salad recipe and kicks it up a notch through the use of fresh ingredients and balanced seasonings. The salad featured daily on the restaurant's menu is easy to recreate in the home kitchen. The meal combines grilled chicken, Gorgonzola crumbles, and Romaine lettuce topped with a Greek dressing. At the restaurant, the salad can be ordered on its own. It is also available in 1/2 salad size as part of their "you-pick-two" option. While the Panera steak and blue cheese chopped salad is great in the restaurant, it's also simple to make this dish for yourself.

Comments

Panera is a chain of restaurants in the "fast-casual" space that has a menu filled with a wide range of salads, soups and sandwiches. The fresh-based concept allows home cooks a good basis for recreating healthy, yet flavorful salad options.

The Panera chopped chicken Cobb salad can be prepared with a range of ingredients. You can easily substitute blue cheese for feta, or create a vegetarian option by leaving off the meat. For best results, allow the Gorgonzola crumbles to warm slightly before serving to create a stronger flavor.
