California Cobb Salad

cobb salad recipe

This is my favorite new take on a Cobb salad.  I got the idea from Tin Roof Bistro in Manhattan Beach, and have been making it at home as much as possible.  It has a traditional Cobb salad feel with a few unexpected twists that make it even tastier.  Toss with a vinaigrette or a little blue cheese dressing (make an easy one with crumbled blue cheese, low-fat buttermilk, a dollop of mayo and salt & pepper) for the finishing touch.
