This gluten free Classic Cobb Salad was a favorite of mine when I used to go to French Lick Power Plant Restaurant. They also added crisp green beans and sweet corn to make it extra healthy.
The Homemade Cobb Salad Dressing is better for you than anything store bought without added preservatives, artificial sweeteners or additives; like Xanthan gum. Whatever that is. Serves 6-8.
1 head of iceberg lettuce or romaine, cleaned and chopped
8 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
4 tablespoons chopped scallions
2 cups cooked chicken, cut into bite size pieces
1/2 cup blue cheese
1 avocado, diced
3 hard boiled eggs, quartered or chopped
2 cups tomatoes, diced
2 cups cooked crisp fresh green beans, trimmed and halved (optional)
2 cups cooked sweet corn (optional)
Homemade Cobb Salad Dressing:
2/3 cup white wine vinegar
1 1/4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon white pepper
1 1/3 cups safflower oil
In a small bowl add all ingredients except oil. Blend well. Then add oil in thin stream whisking constantly until emulsified.
Place your lettuce in a large salad serving bowl. Artfully arrange remaining ingredients over lettuce. Pour dressing over salad or serve to the side. Yum Yum!
