I’ve never really been a salad person. Which is strange because I typically like everything that’s on a salad, just not a salad itself if that makes sense. It’s probably because the ratios are usually wrong to me. 

You see, I’m always looking for that perfect bite.  A bite that includes a little bit of warm, cold, crunchiness, softness, spice, and sweetness.  And that perfect bite is what I set out to create whenever I’m trying to transform any salad.

Today’s transformation is your classic cobb to the most flavorful shrimp cobb salad. I subbed out your standard (often bland) chicken for warm citrus grilled shrimp.  Chives for red onion and roquefort cheese for an herbed crumbled goat cheese. And lastly, instead of a red wine vinaigrette I played up the citrus from the shrimp with a cilantro and lime dressing.

These substitutions are not only crazy easy, but they’re extra flavorful.  Which you guessed it, helps to create that perfect bite.  Check out the recipe below, and let me know by tagging me on Instagram if you end up trying this shrimp cobb salad recipe for yourself! Truly, MKR
