Cobb Salad
Recipe type: Supper
  • 4 -5 cups mixed salad greens (I used what was in my crisper - a mix of field greens, iceburg lettuce and romaine)
  • 4 or 5 chives, chopped and added to the greens
  • 3 or 4 green onions, sliced and added to the greens
  • 6 slices of bacon, cooked until crisp and crumbled
  • 2 chicken breasts, grilled and torn into bite sized pieces
  • 4 hard boiled eggs, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 1 pint of grape tomatoes, washed and cut in half (I used a tricolor mix of tomatoes but plain red is perfectly fine)
  • ½ lemon (to squeeze over avocado)
  • 2 ripe avocados, seed removed and cut into ½-inch pieces. Squeeze lemon juice over the avocado pieces to prevent them from browning.
  • ½ of an English cucumber, diced
  • 1 cup of cubed old cheddar cheese
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. In a large bowl, toss together the various lettuces, sliced green onions and chives.
  2. Arrange the chicken, bacon, tomatoes, eggs, cucumber, cheese and the avocado on a serving platter.
  3. Serve with your favourite salad dressing or if you aren't lazy like I was, you can easily make the traditional dressing. It is a red wine vinaigrette and there are many recipes out there on the web.
