Cobb Salad with Green Goddess Dressing

Cobb Salad with Green Goddess Dressing

Cobb Salad

I love salads. In fact, I often crave them.  Even those people who don’t love salads the way I do are always delighted when I serve this Cobb salad.  The combination of summertime tomatoes, crisp lettuce, seafood and fresh herb filled dressing could turn even the faintest of heart into a fan.

INGREDIENTS

2 heads butter leaf or romaine lettuce

2 tomatoes (quartered)

1/3 cup cherry tomatoes

3/4 cup sliced cucumber

3 hard boiled eggs (quartered)

9 oz. lump crab meat fresh or canned

Place the lettuce into a large serving bowl.  Top with the tomatoes, bell pepper strips and cucumber.  Sprinkle the bay scallops on top and arrange the prawns around the sides of the bowl.  Fill the center of the salad in with the crab.  Finish with the avocado, egg, baby corn and capers.  Top with Green Goddess salad dressing.
