A nice version of the Cobb salad, but I found the lemon juice overwhelming. Next time I will reduce that part by half. Thank you.
Best Salad Ever! All the flavors are wonderful together. We don't even use any dressing on this salad. It is delicious just as is. Thanks for a great salad Barb!
We loved this salad. I didn't follow the directions for the chicken breasts, though. Instead, I seasoned with our favorite spicy steak seasoning and grilled on the charcoal grill. All of the bacon, eggs, avocado, tomato, and onions gave great flavor and we didn't need the cheese. Loved the simple dressing with the tang of lemon. Yum. Perfect dinner on a hot summer day.
