Cobb Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing
I absolutely love a cobb salad.
It really is a meal in a bowl and a healthy one at that.
This is a great way to use up leftover chicken. The recipe calls for grilled chicken, but if you have leftover roasted or baked chicken, breast meat or dark, feel free to use it. As long as it hasn't been cooked in a sauce it will work just fine.
For the Blue Cheese Dressing:
3/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled
Fry the bacon until it is crispy and boil the eggs until they are hard set. Let the eggs cool.
Wash the romaine lettuce and cut it into bite size pieces. Arrange it on two large salad plates.
Slice the chicken breast across the grain and lay the slices on the lettuce, along one corner of each plate. Crumble the bacon into small pieces and place them in a small pile on the lettuce. Peel and halve the hard cooked eggs and add them to the salad as well as the sliced tomatoes and sliced avocado. Add a small pile of the crumbled blue cheese in the middle of the salad or spread it over all of the ingredients.
Drizzle the whole salad with the blue cheese dressing and serve.
Serves 2 as a main course salad.

Did You Know?...
The cobb salad recipe is said to have originated at The Brown Derby restaurant in Hollywood. Bob Cobb, the owner, is said to have put together the salad around 1937 to satisfy his own late night craving. He thought the salad was so good, he began serving it to his restaurant clients the very next day, calling it, appropriately enough, his "cobb salad".
How to Make Cobb Salad Restaurant Style: For some reason I am not sure about, this salad is always served with the individual ingredients in separate little piles on top of the lettuce. Some restaurants will arrange the ingredients in rows, while others will serve them in small distincive piles around the plate. That makes for a great presentation but certainly feel free to mix it up to eat it.If you love this cobb salad, you will find many more fantastic salad recipes here too.
