This salad may seem like there are many steps to prepare it, but if you plan ahead, it’s easy to make. Here are some helpful suggestions to simplify the recipe:

  • Cook the eggs ahead of time; this could be in the morning or at lunch. Hard-boiled eggs can last a few days in your refrigerator, so there's no downside to cooking a bunch at a time. Hard-boiled eggs make great snacks, can be eaten for lunch or added to a salad served on another night.
  • Multi-task and cook the bacon while chopping the veggies.
  • I used a mixture of leafy green and iceberg lettuce for variety in this cobb salad. It really doesn't matter what kind of lettuce you use - it's a personal preference.  
  • For the chicken, you can buy small boneless chicken breasts and pop them in the oven before you start preparing the meal. I brushed them with olive oil, salt and pepper and cook them at 350° F for 45 minutes.
