Chopped Cobb Salad

Yield Serves 4 (serving size: 1 3/4 cups)
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.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups (3/4-inch) cubed French bread
  • Cooking spray
  • 6 cups chopped hearts of romaine lettuce (about 2 hearts)
  • 1 cup chopped seeded plum tomato
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 2 ounces crumbled blue cheese (about 1/2 cup)
  • 4 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 hard-cooked large eggs, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons finely minced shallots

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.

  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.

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

  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.

  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!
