I was surprised that everyone loved this meal! The kids were captivated by the colors and the beauty of the presentation, and then declared it delicious. A winner. Granted this was a bit fussy: frying bacon, pan grilling chicken, boiling both eggs and corn on the cob. Then there are the cold ingredients: chopped iceberg lettuce, chopped tomatoes and sliced avocado. But then the fun begins, arranging all of the elements on a plate, and turning a Thursday night dinner into something really fun.
A traditional cobb salad is served with crumbled blue cheese, but I was certain that wasn’t going to be popular at my table. Instead, I made up a milder version of a blue cheese dressing. If you like your blue cheese flavor stronger, then double the amount of cheese.
Mild Danish Blue Cheese Dressing
- 1 c. mayonnaise
- 1 c. buttermilk
- 4.5 oz. Danish blue cheese
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- fresh ground pepper to taste
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender.
