A pretty presentation for an afternoon with friends, these mini-Cobbs have all the good stuff--avocado, chicken, bacon, and a creamy blue cheese dressing.
cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
tablespoons plain low-fat yogurt
tablespoons red wine vinegar
clove garlic, finely chopped
cup crumbled blue cheese (2 oz)
cups mixed salad greens
packages (5 oz each) sliced smoked chicken breast, chopped
hard-cooked eggs, quartered
medium ripe avocado, pitted, peeled and sliced
medium tomatoes, chopped
cup bacon flavor bits or chips
In small bowl, beat mayonnaise, yogurt, vinegar and garlic with wire whisk. Stir in blue cheese. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
Just before serving, arrange greens on 4 salad plates. Top with remaining salad ingredients. Drizzle dressing over salads.
If desired, sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper.
Short time? Purchase hard-cooked eggs from the salad bar in your local supermarket.
Garnish salads with additional crumbled blue cheese.
