Cobb salad is normally so high in calories that it defeats the purpose of ordering a salad. So here's a little twist on the usual. Instead of a creamy dressing, this recipe uses a vinaigrette. For a gluten-free version, substitute a good gluten-free bread for the French bread.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 2

Place bread cubes on a large rimmed baking sheet. Coat bread generously with cooking spray; toss. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until crisp and golden, stirring after 5 minutes. Cool completely.

Step 3

Place lettuce and next 5 ingredients (through eggs) in a large bowl. Cover and chill, if desired.

Step 4

Combine vinegar and next 3 ingredients (through salt) in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Gradually add oil, stirring with a whisk. Stir in shallots. Pour dressing over salad mixture; toss gently. Top with croutons, and serve immediately.

Step 5

Tip: Make it easy on yourself and hard-cook the eggs, cook the bacon, and make the vinaigrette ahead, so all you have to do before dinner is assemble!
