  1. Avocado Dressing: In a blender or mini-chopper, blend avocado, oil, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, salt, cayenne pepper and water, until smooth. Thin dressing with additional water if desired.
  2. Salad: Divide salad greens among individual plates. Place a mound of chicken in center of each. Arrange turkey-style bacon, tomatoes, egg wedges and red onion around chicken. Sprinkle with blue cheese. Drizzle with dressing just before serving.


  • Variation:
  • Use diced ham in place of chicken and regular bacon in place of turkey-style bacon. Use shredded Cheddar, Swiss, Gouda or your favourite cheese instead of blue cheese.

What's not to love about a cobb salad? Hearty & filling!

I'm not a salad person but I gave this a try. This is the best dressing I've ever had! Never ate this much salad in one sitting before.

We ate every last bit. I thought the avocado dressing might be too much, but I was wrong.
