Cobb salads are fantastic! They’ve got it all and I never tire of them. Lots of restaurants serve a Cobb salad, as they’re such a pleasing, satisfying meal all by themselves. If you like, serve this with toasted baguette or cheddar crackers.
You can make this salad in a large serving bowl for a family, or arrange it on individual plates for just one or two people. Don’t like blue cheese? Leave it out or substitute another style of cheese instead, like grated cheddar or swiss. Delicious!
