Not much exciting going on down at the coast - finals for the teen, prepping for graduation and the associated company coming down for the event.  However, I thought I'd share the really nice Cobb Salad I made for dinner last night.  I don't know why I don't do it more often - we love big salads for dinner!  I realized after I made it, that I'd left out the lovely avocado I had purchased to use.  The plate was so filled though, nothing else would have fit!

I bought a Rotisserie Chicken, skinned it and took off one of the breasts - diced it up.  It was very moist.  Then I lay down a base of chopped iceberg lettuce (I know, I know, no nutrition, I love it anyway) and a couple of handfuls of baby spinach, also chopped (there's some nutrition for you!).

Then, I layered rows of chicken, halved grape tomatoes (for the hubs, none for me), crisp chopped apple wood smoked bacon, sliced boiled egg, grated Co-Jack cheese, and sliced English cucumber. 
I'm not a tomato fan - so my salad was less colorful.  That
was remedied when I added Light Catalina Dressing
to the top of my salad.

Refreshing, delicious, and very filling.  We followed with a 2 mile walk along the bay at dusk, and a little television...slept like babies!  I will be making a concerted effort to include more one-plate salad dinners this summer.  It feels so "summery"!!!
Mr. Flip Flop's salad appears to have less chicken...
but it really had more...just got hidden under the masses
of English Cucumber!  Bleu Cheese was his
dressing of choice.  We both cleaned our plates!

  1. I'm so glad you posted this. I haven't made a Cobb salad for ages and now I'm reminded how much I enjoy it. Yours looks delicious and it is such a great summer salad.
