Cobb Salad

What to fix for lunch for company that is special but not your typical dinner fare?  That was the question I posed to myself yesterday when I got a call from my brother that he and his lovely wife were coming through town and wanted to stop by for lunch.  A composed salad came to mind and in my opinion there is none better than the Cobb Salad.

This is definitely a meal unto itself with all the traditional components of chicken, bacon, eggs, tomatoes, avocadoes and whatever else one might choose to make it unique.  I added a bowl of bite sized roasted asparagus pieces and  another of olive slices. Put everything out on a big platter along with a large bowl of greens and let everyone mix and match toppings as they want. Along with some warm buttered French bread, Arnold Palmers (1/2  part ice tea and 1/2 part lemonade) as our beverage and delightful conversation, it was a quite a lunch.

No recipe today as one really isn't needed but I will give you my previous post for the homemade dressing that topped this magnificent salad:  Bleu Cheese dressing.
