Create-Your-Own Cobb

I think it’s fun to serve customizable dishes when having people over. This one was semi-inspired by a scene from “Julie and Julia”, where everyone’s ordering their own version of Cobb salad.


3 chicken thighs, seasoned the way you like (I used Penzey’s Bicentennial Rub and some salt and garlic powder)

1 avocado, sliced

handful bleu cheese, chopped up

2 hardboiled eggs, chopped

3 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled

lettuce (I used a head of romaine and half a head of green leaf)

1/2 tin cherry tomatoes, halved and salted

1 cucumber, chopped

Red wine vinaigrette (recipe to follow)

Grill chicken and slice into pieces. While you’re grilling chicken, make dressing and prepare other ingredients. Serve cukes, tomato and salad in a big bowl, and put each other ingredient on the side so people can make their own Cobb.

For dressing

olive oil and red wine vinegar (3:1 ratio or so)

1 garlic clove, minced

about 1 tsp dijon mustard

salt and pepper

Combine ingredients, shake together and serve.
