simple cobb salad recipe - perfect for a group!

At our hotel-themed girls’ night in, Camille put a fresh spin on this protein-packed room service staple by swapping Romaine lettuce for Bibb, and replacing cheese and a heavy vinaigrette with a lighter homemade pesto dressing. So delicious, and we always love a dish that can be served at room temp.
