Sunday Brunch: Cobb Salad

Editor's note: Each Saturday morning we bring you a Sunday Brunch recipe. Why on Saturday? So you have time to shop and prepare for tomorrow.

The Cobb salad combines many of the essential elements of both breakfast and lunch. Cooked eggs, chicken and bacon meet tomato, blue cheese, and avocado to make a salad that satisfies all the needs of brunch. Some like to dress their Cobb salads with a creamy dressing; I prefer to keep it a little lighter with a vinaigrette. As always, I recommend a thick-cut bacon.
