Cobb Salad with Vinaigrette Dressing

I think my favourite salad is a Cobb Salad simply because it has so many ingredients that I love all put together in such a colourful and beautiful display!  Traditionally this is served with a creamy dressing, but this lighter vinaigrette is so delicious that you won't imagine putting anything else on top of your salad!!

1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp lemon juice
1 small garlic clove, minced
1 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
3/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp dried mustard powder
3/4 cup of grapeseed or avocado oil
1/4 cup olive oil
1 large container of mixed greens (choose one with 'sturdier' leaves like romaine, kale and endive)
2 baked chicken breasts, diced
2 medium tomatoes, diced (I used a mixture of a small yellow,red and orange tomatoes for colour)
3 hard boiled eggs, sliced
1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled
6 strips of bacon, cooked and diced

  • In a blender combine the first 8 ingredients for the dressing.  Slowly add the oils in a steady stream.  Place in a serving container and set aside.
  • Cover a large serving platter with the mixed greens.  Arrange the chicken, tomatoes, eggs, cheese and bacon over the greens in rows. Grind black pepper over top.
  • Serve with the dressing and ENJOY!
