Cobb Salad

One thing that I love about Cobb salad is that it makes a complete meal. Another thing I love about it is that I can lay it out on a platter and make it look like a layered salad. You can mix it all together if you want, but I like laying the ingredients out one at a time so it makes a pretty striped pattern. Also the proportions are flexible, if you want to use 6 eggs and a whole package of bacon, go right ahead!

1 head of romaine, chopped
2 cups watercress, chopped a bit
1 cup baby arugula
3 hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
8 slices of bacon, cooked and broken into pieces
2 cups diced chicken or turkey (you can even use deli slices for great ease of assembly)
2 avocados, pitted, peeled and diced
1 tomatoes, chopped
1 cup crumbled blue or feta cheese

  1. In a large bowl or platter, arrange the chopped romaine, watercress, and Arugula.
  2. One by one, arrange the remaining ingredients over the bed of lettuce.
  3. Serve with a variety of dressing choices - My Cobb dressing, blue cheese or a vinaigrette.
  4. Enjoy!
