Maria’s Italian Cobb Salad with Simple Parmesan Dressing

My dear friend Maria is also a food blogger. We talk probably every day by texting and Facebook, or the phone. There’s always something to talk about. Her blog is called Maria’s Mixing Bowl. She has delicious recipes and now she shares lots of delicious and great recipes from other great bloggers too, including ours!!

This salad recipe I’m sharing with you is just a really simple one she quickly made tonight for her and her hubby Rob. It’s not fancy and she took the pic with her phone. She sent it to me because I told her I wanted to share it on my blog  since she doesn’t really share her own recipes lately. Her dressing is so simple to make and oh wow, it’s so good! I made it tonight and it’s ready for tomorrow nights dinner salad. Throw whatever you have in the fridge in your salad like Maria did and enjoy!
