Sounds yummy!

Cobb salad is a wonderful main dish salad. Here is the recipe from the
Brown Derby in Los Angeles where it was created:

Cobb Salad

6 cups shredded lettuce
3 cups chopped cooked chicken
3 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
2 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese (3 ounces)
6 slices bacon, crisp-cooked, drained and crumbled
1 medium avocado, halved, seeded, peeled and cut into wedges
1 small stalk Belgian endive (optional)
Brown Derby French Dressing

Place lettuce on 6 individual plates.  Evenly divide chicken, eggs, tomatoes, 
blue cheese and bacon among plates, arranging each in a row on top of the 
lettuce.  Place avocado wedges and endive leaves, if desired, to the side.  
Serve with Brown Derby French Dressing.  Makes 6 servings.

Brown Derby French Dressing

In a screw-top jar, combine 1/3 cup red-wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, 
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1 clove garlic, minced.  
Cover and shake to mix well.  Add 1/2 cup olive oil, or salad oil; cover and 
shake vigorously.  Chill thoroughly.  Shake before serving.  Makes 1 cup.
