Layered Chicken Cobb Salad

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This is a wonderful main coarse salad to feed 4-6 people. The dressing can be made well in advance and chilled, and will become stronger in flavor with refrigeration time. This is the perfect salad to serve at your next dinner party, not only is is the most delicious salad, it makes a beautiful presentation. If you are serving more than 4 people, I suggest to double or increase all ingredients and also the dressing.

I love Cobb salad and this one is fantastic! I made the dressing a day ahead and had the salad last night for dinner. Even though I made just one serving of the salad, it was still beautiful in a smaller glass bowl. I used an English cucumber, rotisserie chicken and shredded cheddar cheese because I'm not a fan of Roquefort. This salad has everything I love! Thanks for sharing this wonderful salad recipe, Kit! Into the "Salad Queen" cookbook it goes! :)

  1. Whisk together all dressing ingredients except the oil, then add in the oil in a small slow steady stream to emulsify, or prepare in a small food processor; set aside and refrigerate.
  2. For the salad: halve, pit and peel the avocados, then cut into about 1/2-inch cubes.
  3. In a large fancy see-through (8-quart) glass bowl, spread the romaine lettuce in the bottom of the bowl.
  4. Then top with strips of cooked chicken.
  5. Sprinkle chopped bacon over chicken.
  6. then continue layering with tomatoes, cucumbers, crumbled Roquefort, avocados and eggs (place the eggs all around the outside of the bowl).
  7. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese or more Roquefort (or feta cheese) and serve.
