A Classic Cobb Salad Recipe

    In my opinion, you cannot go wrong with a classic Cobb salad…it just can’t be beat.  A Cobb salad is nice, fresh and hearty enough to be a meal in itself and I love serving it with some of my homemade ranch dressing or my homemade Caesar salad dressing.  

            A Cobb salad gets its name from Ty Cobb’s cousin who owned the Brown Derby back in the late 1920’s.  A Cobb salad differs from a chef salad in that a Cobb salad has added bacon and tomatoes, whereas a chef salad does not.  A Cobb salad usually has avocados added also but since my family is not a big fan of avocados, I do not include it in this salad.

  • 2 heads leaf lettuce, rinsed and chopped (I use Romaine or Iceberg)
  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed or chopped
  • 4 hard-boiled eggs, sliced or chopped
  • 6 slices of crispy, chopped bacon
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 4 oz. Bleu cheese, Gorgonzola cheese or Roquefort cheese crumbles
  • 2 T. flat leaf parsley
  • 2 T. finely chopped chives
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Place the lettuce in a bowl.  Arrange the other ingredients attractively across the greens. When ready to serve, add the dressing and toss the salad.
