Cobb Salad for a hot night

Lee's version of Cobb Salad for a hot summer night

For two salad platters:

Bed of lettuce
1 1/2 chicken breasts, grilled
2 hard boiled eggs
6 green onions
3-4 slices cooked bacon
8 cherry tomatoes
2 handfulls of any kind of cheese you have
a dozen or so black olives
half an avocado

Cut the stuff in bite-sized pieces and arrange the items in stripes on the bed of lettuce

Drizzle with your favorite dressing.

(Mine is going to have chunky bleu cheese dressing)

Lee

Your salad looks terrific. It has been my favorite salad for years until one day I saw the calorie count. Want to know what it is? No, I didn't think so.
