Classic Cobb Salad

This salad includes hard-cooked eggs. It is easy to overcook them, giving the yolks an unsightly greenish tinge and a dry texture. This gentle method ensures good results: Put the eggs in a saucepan and add cold water to cover them by 2 inches. Bring to a boil over medium heat. When the water begins to boil, remove from the heat, cover and let the eggs stand in the water for 20 minutes. Rinse under cold running water until cool, then peel. Traditionally, Cobb salad is made with Roquefort cheese, which gives a richness and tang to the dressing as well as to the salad. If you prefer a milder blue cheese, try Danish or Maytag.

Beautiful presentation! Wrong ingredients.

The picture in the catalog is what made me want to make this salad. The beautiful crisp iceberg wedge... but wait! The recipe calls for chopped romaine! Big difference. The picture also shows slivers of red onion -- none found in the recipe. Anyway... I made the salad as pictured using the other ingredients listed and it looked beautiful. Everyone gobbled them up. I do think Maytag blue cheese would be the better cheese choice for this gorgeous salad. Also try to find loose iceberg heads. I added roasted garlic crouton crumbles. Yummm!
Pros: Easy, Appearance, Adaptable, Impressive, Will Make Again
Cons: Confusing, Ingredients

Quick and tasty

This was a really tasty salad the whole family loved even my 5 year old. It was fast to prepare. The first time i made it i didn't have some of the ingredients and it was still great. The dressing with it was really great. I wouldn't use a super strong blue cheese. Some are more pungent and that's not as complementary. I also didn't use parsley. I have made this several times and i use the dressing recipe on a lot of other salads as well.
