What is in a Cobb Salad?

Cobb Salads are an entree salad popular in the United States. Start with a bed of lettuce (something mild such as romaine or iceberg lettuce), then top with chicken, bacon, tomatoes, avocado, blue cheese (typically Roquefort), hard-boiled eggs, and chives.

I used Open Nature Whole Roasted Chicken, which is available in my area exclusively at Albertsons, Vons, and Pavilions stores. I buy this chicken frequently because the flavor is great (not artificial or overly salty) and it does not contain carrageenan. In fact, it’s the only whole roasted chicken I’ve ever found that does NOT contain carrageenan.

I also used Open Nature uncured Applewood Smoked Bacon. I prefer to buy uncured bacon at any given opportunity, and this one tastes really great. Also, the price point is lower than other uncured bacons I’ve found.

For this salad, I cooked the bacon on a rack set over a rimmed baking sheet in the oven (400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes). Coat the rack with nonstick spray and line the baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup.

Cobb Salad Dressing

Red wine vinaigrette is the traditional Cobb Salad dressing choice, but I swapped it out for a tangy, creamy balsamic vinaigrette made with just two ingredients: Open Nature Balsamic Vinaigrette and Open Nature Plain Greek Yogurt.

Just mix one container of Greek Yogurt with 1/4 cup Balsamic Vinaigrette (less for a thicker dressing). This dressing is rich and tangy and packed with a little extra protein to boot.
