Cobb Salad with Dressing

For those of you who are interested in making the salad, here is the recipe.  The interesting thing was that all the lettuce was chopped, and they brought it to the table with the toppings laid out, but they tossed it, which I thought makes a lot of sense, and of course, it tasted better with the ingredients mixed together.

½ head Iceberg lettuce                       6 strips crisp bacon
½ bunch watercress                           1 avocado
1 small bunch chicory                         3 hard boiled eggs
½ head romaine                                 2 Tbsp chives, chopped
2 medium tomatoes, peeled              ½ C bleu cheese, crumbled
½ breast turkey, poached                  1 C dressing * (seems like a LOT)

Chop all greens finely and arrange in salad bowl.  Cut tomatoes in half, remove seeds, and dice fine.  Also fine dice turkey, avocado, and eggs.  Arrange the above ingredients, including the bleu cheese and bacon crumbles, in straight lines across the salad.  Arrange chive diagonally across the above lines.  Present this at the table, toss the salad with the dressing and place on chilled plates.

Makes 4-6 servings.
