Delicious Chopped Cobb Salad with Spicy Garlic Vinaigrette and Homemade Garlic Herb Croutons - So full of flavor and positively mouth watering!

I LOVE salads, and lately, chopped salads are my favorite. So it made sense to create a chopped salad that everyone would love – a Chopped Cobb! The dressing is a tangy, slightly spicy, garlic vinaigrette. What knocks this salad out of the park though, are the homemade garlic & herb croutons. Holy goodness they are addicting, and so easy to make!

This is by far one of the best salads I’ve ever made at home. It’s perfect as a dinner party meal starter, or add some chicken for a full lunch. Either way, it’s delicious!
