One of my all-time favorites ‘entrée salad recipes’ is this Classic Cobb Salad. This easy to make salad is loaded with, bacon, tomato, avocado, blue cheese, hard-boiled eggs, crisp lettuce, and juicy chicken. Top it off with homemade ranch dressing or dressing of your choice.

I can now say that I have been to Tiffin, Iowa. I am not sure how I ended up there, but I drove through this afternoon on my way to Coralville. I needed to go down to the Amana Colonies to buy additional Christmas ornaments for my daughter’s host families in Belgium. Of course they were sold out. I was on my way to the Outlet Mall in Williamsburg, and apparently made a wrong turn.

I never made it to Williamsburg, but I did find myself at the Coral Ridge Mall in Coralville. It is days like today that I really miss living in a big city. I could not find Iowa themed ornaments anywhere!

I did manage to find a National Geographic Scenes of America calendar to send. I may have found a couple of new cookbooks while in Barnes and Noble. Sadly the highlight of my day was the soft pretzel bites I ate on the drive home! Luckily Cobb Salad is incredibly easy to make when your day is a disaster and you need something fast!!

Classic Cobb Salad Ingredients:

The classic Cobb salad is an entrée garden salad typically made with chopped salad greens (butter lettuce and romaine lettuce), diced tomato, crispy bacon, chicken breast, hard-boiled eggs, avocado, chives, crumbled blue cheese, and red-wine vinaigrette.

I personally prefer homemade ranch, but I have included links to all of my salad dressing recipes below so you can choose your favorite as well.

How to make a Classic Cobb Salad:

Cook the bacon in a skillet on medium heat until crispy on both sides. Remove from skillet and place on paper towels to drain. Once cooled, chop into bite sized pieces.

Peel hard-boiled eggs and cut into quarters.

Wash lettuces and drain in a colander. Cut or tear into bite sized pieces and mix with parsley and green onions. Place on a large platter or in a decorative bowl.

Arrange chicken, avocado, tomato, and eggs over lettuce.
