“This is based on Smoked Chicken Cobb Salad from the Cooking Light Best Ever Slim-Down Recipes book. To simplify it, I modified it to remove the smoking of the chicken. This is quite a tasty salad. I love all the different flavors. I used a large clove of garlic in the dressing and it had a good bite. The avocado I used was about 1 cup diced.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To prepare dressing, combine first 7 ingredients in a mini food processor; process until smooth.
  2. To prepare salad, cook bacon in a nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan; crumble. Add canola oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add chicken to pan; saute 6 minutes on each side or until done. Cool slightly; shred with 2 forks.
  3. Combine romaine, spinach, and basil in a large bowl; toss. Arrange 2 cups spinach mixture on each of 4 plates. Divide bacon, chicken, 1/3 cup avocado, tomatoes, eggs, and cheese evenly among plates. Drizzle about 3 tablespoons dressing over each salad.
