Kinda-Cobb Salad

When people hear "Cobb salad," their minds usually associate this with corn-on-the-cob.  In fact, a traditional Cobb salad doesn't have corn in it at all.  It just happened to be invented by Cobb, Howard Cobb.

A lot of people are stumped when it comes to salads.  They need inspiration to steer them away from the same ol' iceburg-tomato-and-cheese trio that usually stakes claim in their salad bowls.  This salad was an easy weeknight meal for 2.  I did not have any tomatoes on-hand, but halved cherry tomatoes would have been a great addition to this salad.  Add or leave out any ingredient you wish; that's the beauty of salads!

Kinda-Cobb Salad

  • 8 large Romaine leafs, diced into 1/2" strips
  • 4 slices turkey lunchmeat, rolled into a log and sliced into 1/2" pieces
  • 4 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup crumbled bleu cheese
  • 1/2 avocado, diced into small cubes
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, diced into small cubes
  • 1/2 small red onion, sliced into thing rings
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots
Layer a bed of Romaine in each of two salad bowls.  Top with remaining ingredients.

Cobb salads are typically served with a vinaigrette of some sort, but use and dressing of your choice.

Serve with garlic bread and enjoy!
