Stumbled across this recipe while looking for a different way to use up the cooked chicken in my freezer. Followed the recipe exactly and mixing some of the dressing into the chicken was a very clever touch. I put goat cheese on my salad, and DH used roquefort. Will make this again, especially on a hot summer evening.

I hate chopping up stuff and I hate making salads........ however, this was made by request for my FAB husband's 60th birthday. He's worth it!!!!! ;^P I perused many recipes and decided, this was it. The only change made was not adding water to the dressing and no chives. I subbed green onions. I love the flavor of the dressing. I will keep the dressing recipe on had as an everyday one. I thought it was simply divine! I used a combination of Romaine, iceberg and spring greens. Thanks a bunch CountryLady for sharing this delish recipe.

Wow! I could eat this salad every day! I know I will, for the next week or so...;-). I was going to scale it down to 1 serving but now I'm glad I didn't. I will use this dressing for all kinds of salads. Even though my version of this dish was super simplified (iceberg, tomato, turkey breast, blue cheese), it was extremely satisfying. Hands down, this is the best salad/dressing I've ever made at home so far. The only change I made was to reduce the salad (safflower) oil to 1/4 of a cup since I don't like too much oil in the dressing. It was perfect! Thank you.

Delicious! I used prepackaged spring mix for the greens and went with goat cheese to top it off. The dressing was mixed in the Vita-Mix. This made a wonderful light meal served with whole grain flat bead. Something I am sure to make again.

I made everything as directed, minus the watercress(husband doesn't like it). We loved it, especially my cobb salad-loving hubby. The dressing was new and different and I preferred it over anything store bought. Thanks!

Excellent salad CL! I used all romaine lettuce, and a sliced red onion in place of chives, also I subbed feta cheese for the Roquefort, and increased the sugar in the dressing, otherwise made as stated, we really enjoyed this! thanks for sharing!...Kitten:)

Great salad and loved all the flavors together. Tried to get a little of everything in each bite.
Only had romaine and spinach so used those for the greens. Never had an avocado in a cobb salad before and liked it.

FABULOUS! Can't wait to make it again! The only thing I did different was use box lettuce instead of the mix suggested. The dressing is to die for - must try. We added leftover corn as well.
