You can mix and match the listed ingredients to create your own version of this cobb salad. We used store-bought roasted turkey, but chicken also works well.


  • 4 slices (4 ounces) bacon

  • 3 tablespoons red-wine vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 1 large head romaine lettuce, shredded

  • 8 ounces (2 cups) roasted turkey breast, cut into ¾-inch dice

  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted, peeled, and thinly sliced

  • 3 ounces (¾ cup) blue cheese, crumbled

  • 2 hard-cooked eggs, cut into wedges

  • 2 plum tomatoes, cut into ½-inch dice


  1. In a medium skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. The bacon may also be cooked in a 425-degree oven on a rack over a rimmed baking sheet until crisp, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Let cool, then cut into 1/2-inch pieces, and set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper. While continuing to whisk, drizzle in olive oil until thickened. Add lettuce, and toss to coat. Place on a large serving platter. Arrange remaining ingredients on lettuce as desired, and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

Cook's Notes

Shredding Lettuce: Discard tough outer leaves, and cut head in half lengths. With cut sides down, slice halves thinly crosswise until you reach the core.
