Man, do I love a cobb salad. There is so much awesome stuff going on: crispy greens, eggs, bacon, tomato, fresh veggies, cheese, the list goes on. I’ve seen them made with an array of ingredients and all of them are heaven on a plate.
The other day, I made a cobb salad for lunch that was to die for…something about the combination of the ingredients and the dressing that was oh so yummy, so I had to share in the deliciousness. You’re welcome :-)
Here’s what I used:
Bacon, chopped (I prepared mine in the oven)
Hard boiled egg, sliced
Litehouse Avocado Ranch with Bacon
Optional: chicken, avocado, bleu cheese crumbles, croutons, scallions, whatever floats your boat!
The rest is simple: just start with a bed of fresh lettuce, then arrange your toppings in different piles or lines on the plate before drizzling the dressing all over the salad. It’s certainly not hard to make, but I enjoy making it look worthy enough to be featured on the Food Network, because that’s how I roll.
The secret to a killer cobb salad is a great dressing. I used Litehouse Avocado Ranch with Bacon to complete the dish and OH MY GOODESS it is delicious. Creamy, flavorful and rich. It is made with real bacon and really brings out the bacon in the salad (because you can never have enough bacon.) And you can definitely taste the avocado in there too, which was perfect because I didn’t have any avocado on hand. It’s good stuff. And you can even use this dressing as a chip dip or spread…perfect for football season that’s right around the corner!
And if you wanted your Cobb Salad to have a slightly different flavor profile, you could try Litehouse’s Homestyle Ranch, Jalapeno Ranch, or Chunky Bleu Cheese dressings. They can all be found in the refrigerated produce section of your local Chicago supermarket. And honestly, I prefer to buy my dressings in this section: a cold, glass-bottled dressing is much better and more fresh-tasting than the stuff you find on the shelves. #SoldinCold
