Cobb salad

Cobb salad

Cobb salad is a classic American main course salad. Chicken, egg, blue cheese and bacon are arranged in strips across a bed of salad greens, providing a healthy punch of protein.

Cobb salad makes an impressive centrepiece on a large serving platter. But for family meals, that would lead to squabbles over the avocado and bacon.

It’s less hassle to arrange the salads individually and tailor them to each person’s preferences.

    A nice take on a classic. I like the idea of individual assemblies to save competing for coveted goodies at the table.
