Cobb Salad has always been a favorite salad of mine. I love a good hearty salad (which a cobb definitely is), and I LOVE blue cheese, one of the staple ingredients of a good cobb salad.
So one day, out of the blue (no pun intended), I decided to make my own cobb salad for this blog. The recipe I came up with definitely feels like a cobb salad, but I switched out many of the traditional ingredients for Italian ones. Crispy prosciutto instead of bacon, creamy gorgonzola instead of blue cheese, arugula instead of romaine, and an olive oil/balsamic dressing instead of a dijon vinaigrette. I kept the chicken, avocado, and cherry tomatoes in there, because I couldn’t change everything, could I?! The end result is a beautiful, crisp, slightly bitter (from the arugula) salad.
