Spice up dinner tonight with a hearty salad that's got something in it for everyone! I made this cobb salad recipe for a party, and it was a huge hit. Hot sauce gives it a little kick, while cilantro and avocado cool things off. —Mary Meek, Toledo, Ohio

The chili-lime dressing really made this salad great. I do love cilantro, so increased it to 1/2 cup. Also subbed out black beans for the kidney beans.

a new favorite! the dressing is fabulous! though we think black or pinto beans work better; it's a more authentic southwestern flavor

Very Yummy!! Only used 1/2 the can of beans and used 1/8 cup cilantro, 1/8 cup fresh parsley. Very tasty! The dressing is a nice change for a cobb salad.

I really like the lime dressing. But, I don't like much spice and my husband has a thing against cilantro so I omitted the green chiles and cilantro. For us, that made this salad recipe a keeper.
