When we need a quick meal to share, we turn Cobb salad into a sandwich masterpiece. Sometimes I substitute tortillas for the bread and make wraps instead. —Kimberly Grusendorf, Medina, Ohio

    I love Cobb salad but I like corn in mine. Sounds delicious.

    So, so good. I love Cobb salad and liked it in a wrap best.

    This was just okay for me-I guess I am not a Cobb salad fan because I didn't like the flavor combination at all.

    We gobbled it down, too! My husband even went into the fridge to sneak the leftovers after I went to bed! I added a few things like avocado, and red onion. That's the beauty of this sandwich. You can really add any topping you would see in a Cobb Salad! I also had blue cheese on hand, so I used that as the cheese. I used a simple homemade balsamic vinaigrette - 1:3 balsamic to olive oil and about 1 tsp. of sugar. Thank you for this delicious sandwich recipe. I'll be making it for company for years to come!

    My husband and son gobbled this down! We used ranch because I didn't have balsamic vinaigrette on hand. Great for a crowd.
