Cobb Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by CountryLady

The Cobb Salad was originally created by Bobb Cobb who owned the Brown Derby Restaurant in Hollywood, California. This version comes from Michael Bonacini who owns a restaurant in Toronto, a chef on the Food Network and a regular guest on my favourite talk show. You can use goat's cheese or feta instead of roquefort and you can substitute the chicken with turkey, ham or shrimp.

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.
