I'm a lover of Cobb Salad & tried this one. I'm not fussy about blue cheese, so I used feta cheese instead. I also added 1/2 each of red, green & yellow bell peppers. Next time, I'll also use crumbled cooked bacon in place of the turkey & ham. It went well with my homemade honey mustard dressing.
I made this for my husband and me last weekend, and we both loved it. It has so many different flavors that make your mouth go WOW! We will be making this quite often in our house.
