Cobb Salad Sandwiches with Air Fryer Root Veg Chips

  • SERVES: 2
  • PREP: 20 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 20 minutes

Cobb's your uncle.

If you’ve ever wanted your Cobb salad to be handheld, you’re in luck. We took all the best parts of the satisfying salad and transformed it into a sandwich. A soft, squishy hoagie roll is our platonic ideal of a hearty sandwich base—one you don’t have to battle when you take a bite—and holds everything together in a nice and kinda-neat way. (Okay, this one is a little messy, but worth it.) Make an extra batch of the dressing for other marinating and drizzling needs, and double up on the blue cheese mayonnaise if you want to dip your crispy air fryer chips in it. You can mix and match any root vegetables and seasonings you like, but our favorite combo is sweet potatoes with a dusting of Chili Garlic seasoning.
