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."

"Delicious! I made this for a birthday luncheon last month and it was a huge hit! I substituted black beans for the kidney beans. Am making it for another birthday lunch this weekend! Wonderful! Also, used the extra dressing for sandwich wraps. The dressing is very fresh and tasty. Will make it often!!"
