Cobb salad

cobb salad

I just love Cobb salad salad. The fist time I saw it in a cooking book I fell in love with its colors.
And even though I am not a big fan of American cuisine (and to be honest I do not know much American dishes except for stakes, Buffalo wings or ribs) the Cobb salad my favorite American dish :)

There are different variants for this salad and this one is made with avocado and chicken breast, bacon and blue cheese :)

You will need:

  • 2 avocado
  • 300 g chicken breast
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 150 g bacon
  • 150 g blue cheese
  • ½ bunch parsley
  • 3 hard boiled eggs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 1 teaspoon Worcester sauce
  • 50 ml red whine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 clove of  garlic
  • 50 ml extra virgin olive oil
  • green salad
  • salt and black pepper


  1. You can either fry the chicken breast or boil it. As well if you have some leftovers from a roast chicken you may use them as well.
  2. Boil the eggs enough so the yolk will be hard and they will be easy to cut.
  3. In a frying pan, with no oil added, fry the bacon until you obtain a nice color.
  4. Cut in cubs the avocado, tomatoes. Also chop the green onion and the parsley and mix this two.
  5. Cut the cheese, also in little cubs. Keep about 30 g uncut. In the same why cut the bacon, eggs and chicken.
  6. For the sauce: crush the kept blue cheese, add the grated garlic clove and the mustard and then gently pour the olive oil. Stir continuously. Add the Worcester sauce, vinegar, salt and pepper.
  7. On a try  place a bed made of green salad. On top of the salad place equal rows of the above ingredients so you can create a pleasant visual contrast, then sprinkle 3-4 tablespoons of sauce on top of everything.

Bon appetite!
