Summer Cobb Salad Recipe! #salad #cobbsalad #summer #berries

Being that my name is Sommer… Can you guess just how many “summer” songs have been sung to me in the course of my life?

An unfathomable number, I tell you.


The most common serenades are:

Ella Fitzgerald’s version of  Summertime

Bananarama’s Cruel Summer

And Summer Lovin’ (Summer Nights) from the musical Grease

Although I have heard some really create versions.

People are so darn funny. Always believing they are the first personal to ever think to sing these songs to me. I just smile and let them have their moment.

I’m nice like that.

(P.S. I’ve also been called Winter, Spring and Autumn an ungodly number of times.)

Even with this slightly irritating musical history, I still love a good summer anthem.

Especially the old soulful versions of Summertime, smooth and sultry. While listening to them, you can almost feel yourself rocking on a front porch in the sweltering heat of a summer evening.

Summertime, and the livin’ is easy
Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high
Oh, your daddy’s rich and your ma is good-lookin’
So hush little baby, Don’t you cry


Making Summer Cobb Salad Recipe! #salad #cobbsalad #summer #berries

Sweltering summer evenings make me long for a dinner that is cool, crisp and refreshing.

Like a Cobb Salad.

Today’s cobb salad recipe incorporates the traditional flavors that make a Cobb Salad so appealing, plus some playful summer ingredients like fresh raspberries, blackberries, and creamy garlic lime vinaigrette.

This cobb salad recipe comes together quickly in a beautiful array of colors and textures. Plus it’s a great way to use up ripe avocados, leftover chicken, and straggling hard boiled eggs left in the fridge.

You can grill the chicken while chopping the veggies, or do what I do, and plan your weekly menu so that you make it on the night after you’ve served chicken. Then just save a couple pieces for the salad.

    If you hadn’t already gotten me with the salad (love Cobb salad), you got me with the mention of Ella Fitzgerald. One of my all time fav singers! Her version of ‘A Foggy Day in London Town” with Louis Armstrong is about my all time fav song

    Hi Sommer. My hubby sings the Summertime song frequently and I am the butt of name jokes too. Being from Philadelphia I heard “yo Adrienne” all. the. time.

    Hey – the link to the dressing isn’t working. :). Hope to make this soon!
