It's not a cobb salad, but it'll satisfy my craving for a chicken salad................It might seem like a weird vegie combination, but i'm just using the fresh I have on hand.

Great pictures. VB, care to share your champagne dressing recipe, I'd love to have it. We were too tired to cook last night. I had some blueberries, he ate some leftover smoked pork tenderloin. He ate it right out of the container, didn't even bother with a plate.

We had our big meal at noon yesterday...went to O'Charley's for lunch. I had Shrimp Scampi Pasta...shrimp scampi with penne pasta, fresh baby spinach, chopped fresh tomatoes cooked just until warm, topped with a few breadcrumbs, melted parmesan and extra shaved parm.

I loved it, except...whenever I have scampi out, they always go way overboard on the garlic. I love garlic, but I don't want to swim in it. Besides, eaten in vast quantities, it gives me a bellyache.

Hi Loprraine! Sorry it took me so long to get back to you.

Creamy Champagne Dressing

1/2 cup real mayonaisse
1/2 cup sour cream
2 Tbsp fresh chopped dill
2 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley
Honey mustard to taste to sweeten
Champagne vinegar to taste, start with a few teaspoons
salt and pepper to taste

-Simply combine all to make a dressing.
-Great for chicken salads
-Adjust quantities accordingly to increase the quantity of your dressing
