What a fabulous meal. My Cobb Salad with Homemade Vinaigrette comes fully loaded with sous vide chicken, tons of fresh vegetables, hard-boiled duck eggs, and crumbles of blue cheese. I decided to sous vide my chicken. I just love how juicy and tender the chicken becomes after 90 minutes in an immersion. You can definitely skip this step. I would suggest that you at least marinate the chicken for a half hour or so prior to grilling. Most of my ingredients are typical to a Cobb salad, but feel free to add your favorites, or take out what you do not enjoy! This was a monster salad. It will easily feed four people!

I sous vide my chicken, like I did for my Greek Salad. So, I had to start preparing the salad about two hours ahead of time. You can absolutely skip this step and just marinate for about thirty minutes. Once the chicken has come out of the sous vide or marinade, grill or sear in a cast iron pan. Cut into chunks. As the chicken is prepping, cut the bacon into pieces and crisp up in a cast iron pan.

Combine all of the ingredients for the vinaigrette in a mason jar and shake. I used this Italian seasoning blend from Delallo. Reserve. Cut the romaine lettuce into bite-size pieces and plate. Start building your salad with romaine, spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, and red onion.

Add the chicken, bacon, and eggs to the platter. Cut and place your avocados on the platter (this should be done at the end to ensure the avocados do not turn brown). Sprinkle on the blue cheese crumbles. Season with a touch more black pepper. Serve and ENJOY this amazing Cobb Salad with Homemade Vinaigrette!

He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth!
