When you taste a Cobb Salad all the flavors should be available to your tongue with none being overpowering. I have had Cobb Salads in restaurants where all you can taste is the Bacon and the Bleu Cheese. While I love both Bacon and Bleu Cheese, I don’t want those two items to be my main meal! You should be able to experience the creaminess of the Avocado, the tenderness of the Chicken and the freshness of the Tomato along with the rest of the ingredients.
I keep the dressing on this salad simple just so the other ingredients shine. When it is all mixed together, the Egg, Avocado, and Bleu Cheese become a part of the dressing.
Serve with some crusty French bread with good salted butter and a glass of crisp Pinot Grigio. This is the perfect summertime meal!
Put all ingredients into a shaker bottle or jar and shake until combined. For a little extra kick add one Tablespoon of Dijon Mustard.
