[ 0 ] December 9, 2009 |

Cobb Salad

8 slices bacon
3 boiled and chopped eggs
1 head iceberg lettuce (shredded)
3 cups cooked chicken meat (chopped)
2 tomatoes (seeded and chopped)
3/4 cup feta cheese (crumbled)
1 avocado (peeled, pitted and diced)
3 green onions (chopped)
1 (8 ounce) bottle Blue Cheese salad dressing

Add bacon to a skillet. Cook in 1 to 2 tbsp. oil over medium high heat until evenly browned. Drain, crumble and set aside. Divide shredded lettuce among the individual serving plates; then divide and arrange chicken, eggs, tomatoes, feta cheese, bacon, avocado and green onions in a row on top of the lettuce. Drizzle with Blue Cheese dressing. Serve.

*Johnna’s tip: As we gear up our stomachs for the feast that will be had on Christmas Day, salads are in order. Cobb salad is one of the most classic salads to come across the American plate and contains something for every taste bud: chicken, bacon, cheese and veggies. For vegetarians, try substituting the bacon and chicken for MorningStar products, they have a cool selection of chicken and bacon without the meat (*we hope that makes sense…). Enjoy!
