Ingredients

For the salad

  • 6 slices bacon cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb chicken tenders or chicken breast
  • 10 oz romaine lettuce cut up into bite sized pieces for your salad
  • 3 eggs hardboiled, peeled, and halved
  • 3 green onions sliced
  • 1/2 pint cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 avocado thinly sliced
  • Roquefort cheese crumbled

For the vinaigrette

  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 ts Worcestershire sauce
  • squeeze lemon
  • 1/4 ts salt
  • 1/4 ts pepper

Instructions

For the vinaigrette

  • Add all vinaigrette ingredients to a bowl or salad dressing shaker, and either whisk or shake until well combined. 
    Red Wine Vinegar Vinaigrette

For the salad

  • Place your eggs in a saucepan, and place just enough cold water to cover them.  Place on your stove on high, until water is boiling and large bubbles are breaking over their surface.  Remove from the heat and leave covered for 15 minutes.  Plunge into ice cold water to cool down, and then peel.  
  • Fry your bacon (cut into bite sized pieces) until crisp and browned, and drain on paper towels.
    Bacon Chicken and Eggs
  • Season both sides of your chicken with salt and pepper.  Heat up 1 tbsp olive oil on med high heat, then cook both sides of the chicken until browned and cooked through.  Cut into bite sized pieces. 
  • Assemble each salad by laying down 1/3 of the romaine lettuce as your salad bed.  Top with 1/3 of all of your ingredients:  chicken, bacon, sliced avocado, halved tomatoes, halved eggs, sliced green onion, and Roquefort cheese.  
    Eggs, cheese, avocado, green onion, cherry tomatoes
  • Top with your red wine vinegar vinaigrette and enjoy!

Notes

To save time, buy chicken and bacon that are already cooked, and eggs that have already been hardboiled.  The Cobb salad is high in calories so beware!  Enjoy this as as a luxurious indulgence!
