This copycat Panera Green Goddess Cobb Salad is easy to make at home. Adding a simple Dijon mixture to the chicken gives it a boost of flavor that works well with the green goddess dressing. The dressing would also work well as a dip or spread, or over potato or pasta salad., August 2022

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Stir onion and vinegar together in a small bowl. Let stand, stirring occasionally, until ready to serve.

  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat (400°F). Stir 1 tablespoon oil, mustard, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon garlic and 1/4 teaspoon pepper together in a small bowl. Brush chicken all over with the mustard mixture. 

  • Oil the grill grates by holding an oil-soaked paper towel with tongs. Place the chicken on the oiled grates; grill, covered, until a thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 160°F, 6 to 7 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. 

  • Meanwhile, combine herbs, yogurt, buttermilk, salt and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon garlic and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a blender; puree until smooth, about 25 seconds.

  • Drain the pickled onion and discard the vinegar. Slice the chicken. Divide greens evenly among 4 plates. Top evenly with eggs, cucumbers, avocado, tomatoes, bacon, chicken and pickled onions. Drizzle the dressing evenly over the salads.
