A California favorite, this Cobb Salad features the original ingredients of chicken, avocado, bacon, eggs, and more, with the bright addition of lemon vinaigrette.

Why Try? Originally created by using whatever was available in the fridge at the Brown Derby Restaurant in Hollywood, you can do the same by keeping many of these ingredients on hand for whenever salad hunger strikes.

Foodie Byte: We’ve kept this salad pretty simple, but some nice additions would be crumbled blue cheese or homemade croutons. We suggest using your favorite lemon vinaigrette which you could make from scratch or find any grocery store.

Preparation

  1. Toss lettuce with green onions and vinaigrette. Arrange on serving platter.
  2. Top with chicken breasts, egg, tomato, bacon, and avocado. Serve immediately.
