Classic Cobb Salad

Valentina

The secret to a great Cobb salad is twofold: the freshness of its ingredients, and the tangy vinaigrette. In this recipe, a quick 1-minute red wine vinaigrette brightens the robust flavors of the blue cheese and bacon. Drizzle that over a bed of crisp romaine and watercress, juicy chicken, tomatoes, and chives - and you have yourself the perfect Cobb salad.

Shopping List
    Salad
  • 8 ounces cooked chicken breast (I used grilled)
  • 1/2 large head romaine lettuce (or 1 small head)
  • 1 bunch watercress
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 5 slices bacon
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and quartered
  • 3/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled
  • 3 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped Red Wine Vinaigrette
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup avocado or grapeseed oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Whisk together all vinaigrette ingredients in a small bowl or jar until smooth. It should taste very tangy, but it will mellow out once combined with the salad ingredients.
  2. Step 2: Wash and dry the salad greens. Chop the lettuces and chicken into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Step 3: Cook the bacon slices in a frying pan until crisp. Crumbled the cooked bacon into pieces.
  4. Serve: Use plates or a large platter and scatter the salad greens across the surface. Next, add rows of the hard-boiled eggs, diced chicken, crumbled bacon, tomatoes, and blue cheese. Scatter the chives on top, along with a bit of black pepper. Drizzle with the vinaigrette, to taste (and maybe a little leftover bacon grease if you dig it). Enjoy.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: Use a nut-based cheese with robust flavor that could mimic traditional blue cheese. As an alternative, raw pumpkin seeds or diced avocado would make great substitutes. Substitute every 1/2 cup of nut-based cheese with 1/4 cup of raw pumpkin seeds or 1 large diced avocado.
