Cobb Salad

A Cobb salad is a great choice for a summer dinner. We have been enjoying this salad at least once a week. You can add all these ingredients or leave out the items you don't enjoy. We use a salad spinner to get the romaine to a dryer consistency.

Cobb Salad for two:

2 hearts of romaine chopped, washed and spin dried.
2 hard boiled eggs, sliced.
1 Avocado skinned and chopped.
4 slices of cooked bacon, chopped.
1 cup cooked and chopped chicken breast.
1 tomato, chopped.
Crumbled bleu cheese or Gorgonzola.
Red onion thinly sliced.

Layer your choice of ingredients and enjoy.

The choice of dressing is up to you. My husband enjoys a Bleu cheese dressing with his Cobb. I prefer to just use salt and fresh squeezed lemon. A Red Wine Vinaigrette is also a good choice.

  1. Perfect! I like your choice of dressing and I might give it a spritz of olive oil too. This salad is summer!

  2. Nice! Any tips on peeling boiled eggs so that they look nice like that? Mine end up looking kind of hacked up :-)

    1. Colleen, Here's some tips from Lovella on hard boiling and peeling eggs.
      Place eggs in the bottom of a saucepan and cover one inch over the eggs with cold water.
      Heat without a lid on high heat to boiling and then put the lid on and remove from heat.
      Let sit for 20 minutes.
      Drain and run cold water over the eggs for several minutes.
      Now you can peel them cleanly most often. This method has worked beautifully for me. Hope it works for you!
