Quick Cobb Salad

  • 6 cups chopped romaine lettuce, rinsed and spun or patted dry
  • 2 seasoned, sautéed chicken thighs - chopped
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, halved
  • 1 large avocado, sliced
  • 5 slices bacon, cooked until crispy - chopped
  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved crosswise
  • ½ cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 4 ounces crumbled blue cheese
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Place a bed of lettuce into a large, shallow serving bowl. Top with rows of chicken and bacon, hard-boiled eggs, avocado slices, cherry tomatoes, red onion, and blue cheese.

Season with salt and pepper, to suit your tastes.

Allow diners to dress the salad at the table. A wide variety of dressings - everything from a balsamic vinaigrette to a creamy blue cheese - will work nicely.
