Cobb Salad with Bleu Cheese

I love bleu cheese! It's probably one of my favorite foods. I know it's an acquired taste and some people don't like it. If you don't like it you can make this salad with your favorite dressing and use a different kind of cheese in the salad. Either way it would be so good. This recipe was adapted from My Kitchen Cafe.

Cobb Salad with Bleu Cheese
1 cup crumbled bleu cheese, divided
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
8 slices bacon, chopped
1 lb chicken, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
salt and pepper
1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved (I used 2 chopped roma tomatoes)
2 avocados, chopped
3 hard boiled eggs, peeled and quartered

In a food processor, place 1/2 cup bleu cheese, olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Process until combined.

Cook bacon until crisp. Remove and place on a plate lined with a paper towel. Drain all but 1 Tbsp of fat from the pan. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Cook chicken in bacon fat until cooked through. 

Toss lettuce with tomatoes, remaining bleu cheese, chicken, bacon, avocados, and eggs. Serve with dressing. 

Serves 4-6
