Southwestern Cobb Salad

I made this for dinner tonight.  It is a huge salad and very filling, but it is also great for a side salad in smaller portions and for lunch too.  Since I am the only one who eats salad in my family, I will be eating this for the rest of the week with my lunch!  The recipe makes six servings

Southwestern Cobb Salad

1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon Southwestern Seasoning Mix (Pampered Chef)

 Salt and ground black pepper

1 package (10 ounces) torn romaine lettuce (8 cups)
1/4 small red onion, cut into thin wedges
