Cobb Salad Ingredients

1/2 head of Romaine lettuce

1-2 small tomatoes diced or a handful of grape tomatoes

2 strips of cooked turkey bacon crumbled

one hard boiled egg (see below for how to microwave hard boiled eggs)

one avocado (cut and scoop insides-dice)

one cooked breast of chicken (baked)

salt and pepper

2 tsp fresh chopped chives

handful of chick peas for added protein

1/4 cup blue cheese (save to garnish salad at end)

Cut, slice or dice all ingredients to desired size onto a cutting board. Make the dressing, then place all ingredients in the same bowl: lettuce, chicken, egg, avocado, tomatoes, chives and turkey bacon.

Salad Dressing

In a separate bowl,

3 tbs. extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

1/4 tsp. mustard (brown, grain or Dijon)

2 tbs. cup red wine vinegar
