This is a very simple and elegant salad to serve as a main dinner entrée. I served this in the restaurant to rave reviews.
The description below is how I arranged my ingredients and there are a lot of arrangements so just pick your favorite. The ideal is to have a different flavor or combination of flavors with each bite of salad.
I served mine with Caesar Dressing (traditional) and you can serve it with your own favorite dressing. If you are inclined to Caesar then the recipe is here: Caesar Salad Dressing
I have eaten many a Cobb Salad in my day and I have traveled many times between Portland & Seattle. There is a little joint off the I-5 in the middle of nowhere called Spiffy’s that has the best Cobb Salad (besides my own) that I have ever had so…if you are every up this way stop in and try one…with their Caesar dressing-it is the one I served in the restaurant.

- “IF” you have nice large oval plates this would be the time to use them.
- Pile as much lettuce as you can get on the plate-at least 4C.
- Arrange your ingredients artfully around the edge of the salad then drizzle dressing all over everything. For company, a nice garnish might be a couple of cheese crisps tucked in at both ends along with a couple wedges of lemon.

- You may certainly use any lettuce you like but my favorite for this is Spring Mix with a little Romaine mixed in for crunch.
- I think there are several other nice additions (but definitely not traditional) to this salad and they coud be ¼ C bay shrimp, ¼ C Black Olives, & a handful of crispy mung bean sprouts.
