Expert Tips for Making a Cobb Salad:
For best results add the dressing to the salad just before serving!
To carry this salad on the go for lunch or other meals, place the heavier and sturdier ingredients such as the chicken, egg and bacon on the bottom of the container so they don't mash the more delicate ingredients or even better, transport in separate containers.
Cut the avocado just before serving or give it a squeeze with some lemon to keep it from turning brown.
