Traditionally the ingredients in a Cobb salad — lettuce, tomatoes, chicken, bacon, hard-boiled eggs, avocado, and blue cheese — are served chopped and mounded separately.
However, this recipe takes a modern view of the classic dish and tosses everything together with a warm, bacon-mustard vinaigrette.
The resulting salad has the same familiar flavors but is easier to eat. The best thing about any type of Cobb salad is that it's hearty enough to stand alone.
