Make your own salad bar...

Cobb Salad

After a busy day gardening in the morning, and school work in the afternoon, the last thing I wanted to do was put a lot of effort and fuss into dinner.  A dig through the fridge uncovered the ingredients for a pretty fine rendition of the Cobb Salad, and this means of creating the salad for dinner are true to the spirit of the salad's origin.  I love setting out a variety of ingredients and letting everyone make their own perfect creation; we do this often with salads, but also with all the wonderful accompaniments for Latin American and Asian foods.

Our offerings this time around were chopped romaine, a mix of finely sliced deli chicken and ham, chopped cucumber, chopped hard boiled egg, chopped tomato and avocado, crumbled bacon, and bleu cheese crumbles (the lime wedges are for our drinks, not the salads :)..  A bottled creamy balsamic dressing ad some crusty bread (not pictured) finished things off perfectly, and a perfectly simple ending to a fruitful day.


  1. Cobb salad is about my favorite and yours looks great! Happy gardening and have a good holiday weekend!

  2. Thanks Pam, you have a great weekend too :-)
