Sometimes in the heat of summer Doc and I don’t cook. We eat salad for dinner. The best thing about this Cobb salad is you only cook one item, bacon. The rest of the ingredients are purchased at the grocery store. Enjoy!

2 cups pulled rotisserie chicken
2 large garden tomatoes, cut in wedges
1 avocado, sliced
6 hard boiled eggs, cut lengthwise in half
1 small wedge of blue cheese, sliced
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (Reserve bacon grease for Warm Bacon Dressing)
Warm Bacon Dressing- Recipe follows
Place romaine lettuce on a large platter. Arrange remaining ingredients decoratively in rows over top of lettuce. Serve salad with Warm Bacon Dressing.
