Lunchbox Salads: Chicken Cobb

     I'm excited to partner with Webstaurant Store to share my favorite recipes for easy, packable lunch salads!  Each week I'll be sharing a different salad idea that you can make ahead for an easy week of healthy lunches. is my go-to for all my disposable containers that make lunch prep so easy + keep my fridge looking so organized!   I used some of their smaller disposable containers in one of my most popular posts about packing a full week of healthy snacks + lunches here.  I recently picked up some larger, open containers that are perfect for prepping salads! 

     This week's packable salad is sure to be a hit, even with the pickiest of eaters!  This chicken cobb combines chicken with cheddar cheese, hard boiled eggs, red onion, fresh chopped tomatoes, croutons, and of course, bacon!  It's topped with Ranch which is the perfect cool and zesty dressing to tie together all the ingredients.  This salad is super filling and very easy to make too!  You can use either chopped grilled chicken or deli chicken breast.  For the dressing, I used a pre-packaged Ranch dressing cup, but you can also make your own homemade Ranch, or pour some dressing into a small jar to pack inside your salad.  I used my favorite Texas Toast brand "garlic and butter" flavor croutons and I also just grabbed pre-packaged hard boiled eggs at the grocery to cut down on prep time.   You can shop my packable salad containers and check out all the ingredients for my chicken cobb salad below!
