This is another post that’s getting it’s space so that this amazing salad and all of it’s fabulous variations are never forgotten when I’m racking my brain for a dinner plan. According to Wikipedia, ‘The Cobb salad is a main-dish American garden salad typically made with chopped salad greens (iceberg lettuce, watercress, endives and romaine lettuce), tomato, crisp bacon, boiled, grilled or roasted (but not fried) chicken breast, hard-boiled eggs, avocado, chives, Roquefort cheese, and red-wine vinaigrette.’ Our family loves ranch dressing, creamy buttermilk herb dip or blue cheese dressing, though a lemon vinaigrette works in a pinch. We really love Brock’s pulled pork…or his smoked salmon…or shrimp, roasted chick peas – you get the idea? And if you really want to get fancy, whip up a few deviled eggs to take it all to another level. We’ve also all tucked into a Cobb for breakfast, and it works well for a crowd – let everyone make up their own bowl! – enjoy!

Have everything cooked, chopped and prepped and then line each bowl with a healthy handful of greens. Top with all of your goodies – any which way you wish – and then drizzle on your favorite dressing and live happily ever after.
