Hot Chicken Cobb Salad

Sharing is caring!

Don’t settle for an ordinary cobb salad when you can have a Hot Chicken Cobb Salad. This salad is loaded with flavor and a touch of heat.

Several years ago, my husband was taught how to make some wonderful hot wings by a friend.  The recipe was the first that we had tried that called for Frank’s® RedHot®, a cayenne pepper sauce that will spice up whatever you add it to.  Ever since then I have developed a taste for things with a bit of kick to them.  Recently I was asked if I would like to review a cookbook that centered around the spicy cayenne pepper sauce.  I thought, “Yes, please!”

Franks Red Hot

I had no real clue what to expect – perhaps a lot of wing recipes, maybe some kind of spicy cheese dip.  I was quite surprised when I opened up Cooking with Frank’s RedHot Cayenne Pepper Sauce: Delicious Recipes That Bring the Heat.  Written by Rachel Rappaport, it is a small cookbook that packs a lot of heat.  Recipes range from Breakfast and Brunch (Eggs Benedict with Hot Hollandaise, Sausage Gravy with Fiery Sour Cream Biscuis, Bloody Mary Gelatain Shots, and Cheesy Pepper Grits to name a few) to Hot and Sweet (Hot Nuts Brittle, Cinnamon Cayenne Buns with Frank’s® RedHot® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce Cream Cheese Frosting, Honeyed Beer – Hot Sauce Ice Cream, plus a few others).

There are beautiful full-color photos of most of the dishes that will make you want to try them.  I have already made the Hot Chicken Cobb Salad and will soon be trying Sweet Thai Wings and Blue Cheese Pecan Broccoli Slaw.  I would never have thought about adding Frank’s® RedHot® to such a wide variety of dishes, but Rachel’s book has me convinced to try it in more recipes.

  • 1/2 cup crumbled Roquefort cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives

FOR DRESSING

  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons Frank’s® RedHot® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

Notes

This is a spicy version of the salad invented at the Brown Derby in the 1930s. Try using leftover rotisserie chicken and cooking the bacon and eggs the day before you want to serve them to make this super quick to pull together on a week night.
