How to make it

  • In a bowl whisk together the vinegar, egg yolk, and mustard. Then slowly pour in the oil, whisking to emulsify. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • In a large bowl toss the avocado, grated egg, tomato, bacon, cheese, lettuce, and enough champagne vinaigrette to just moisten the ingredients. With a spoon, mash everything together until it resembles a loose guacamole. Season with salt and pepper. If you are not using immediately, cover surface with plastic wrap and refrigerate
  • When you are ready to assemble the salads, set out 4 dinner plates. Place a ring mold on each plate and fill it with salad. Using moderate pressure, press the salad down with a spoon or fork until it is flush with the top of the ring. Refrigerate the salads for 1 hour.
  • Grill the breasts until just done, about 5 minutes per side. May be sautéed, if you wish. Keep warm.
  • To unmold the salads, hold down the top of the salad with one hand while you carefully remove the ring with the other, giving it a slight twist as you lift up if it doesn’t move easily.
  • Slice the warm chicken and place on top of the salads in a grid fashion, 2 pieces one way, 2 the other, and so on. Drizzle the plate with the basil and chile oils, if desired. Serve immediately. Serves 4.

    original Cobb salad:
    The Cobb salad is a main-dish American garden salad made from chopped salad greens (iceberg lettuce, watercress, endives, and Romaine lettuce), tomato, crisp bacon, boiled or roasted (not fried) chicken breast, hard-boiled egg, avocado, chives, Roquefort cheese, and red-wine vinaigrette. Black olives are also often included.

    'C' is for Cobb...
    Say,Cobb,you 'Ty' :o)
    Holding the career record for stealing home,and dagnabbit,anyone should overlook his temperament...besides,who else could tote a paper sack of a million in negotiable bonds and a colt.45 into a hospital for his last stay,which I would kind of think that would say...
    "It's a double play..." Cure me,or,else! " :o)
    He was tough,hard boiled,and surly,and some people did'nt like him,but he sure knew the game.
    Quote: "Teach a boy to throw a baseball and he won't throw a rock"
    As far as I am concerned this recipe is rock solid...Call it what you want,it's a home run :o)
    Hope you and your family are having a sunshine kind of Sunday.
    Kind Regards

    I say this is pretty darn close to a Cobb Salad myself, just a few changes on the sounds delicious, love Champagne Vinaigrette with the addition of blue cheese crumbles! One thing though, I'm not much on eating raw eggs, is there any way to exclude the egg or maybe a substitute?
