A Cobb salad is a great choice for a summer dinner. I’m working on a more heart healthy diet and would like to have this at least once a week for dinner. You can add all these ingredients or leave out the items you don’t enjoy.
Cobb Salad for two:
2 hearts of romaine chopped, washed and spin dried.
2 hard boiled eggs, sliced.
1 Avocado skinned and chopped.
4 slices of Canadian Bacon, chopped.
1 cup cooked and chopped chicken breast.
1 tomato, chopped.
Crumbled bleu cheese or Gorgonzola, optional
Red onion thinly sliced.
Layer your choice of ingredients and enjoy.
The choice of dressing is up to you. My husband enjoys a Bleu cheese dressing with his Cobb. I prefer to just use salt and fresh squeezed lemon. A Red Wine Vinaigrette is also a good choice.

Your salad looks delicious! Have a great weekend!
Perfect eggs! Looks so delicious.
Catching up with all your posts. Love the pelicans and that salad looks delicious. Definitely salad weather at the moment. B x
Yum!! Yes, this summer heat (which I love) calls for summer salads and this is one of my favourites! Glad you used Canadian bacon – smile.
I’d have to leave the eggs out. Just don’t like hard boiled eggs.
Looks very good! I’m supposed to be working on that as well. I’m struggling with being consistent. 🥺
Looks delicious, Ellen! A great summer dinner!

So get ready to roll your eyes and ask yourself, “What is WRONG with this woman?” Confession: I have NEVER had a Cobb Salad! Never! I don’t know why!!! I’ve had maybe “versions” of one, but never anything will all these specific ingredients. And I LOVE all of these ingredients in salads!!! Time to be a big girl and give a Cobb Salad a try!
