Layered Cobb Salad
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
3 (6 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 California avocados
1 head romaine, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-wide slices
bacon slices, cooked until crisp, drained, and finely chopped
3 medium tomatoes, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
3 ounces Roquefort cheese, crumbled
2 bunches watercress, coarse stems discarded
2 hard-boiled large eggs, halved and forced through a coarse sieve
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh chives
Make dressing: Whisk together all dressing ingredients except oil in a bowl, then add oil in a slow stream, whisking until emulsified.
Make salad: Bring 5 cups water to a simmer in a 2-quart saucepan, then simmer chicken, uncovered, 6 minutes. Remove pan from heat and cover, then let stand until chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes. Transfer chicken to a cutting board and cool completely. Cut into 1/2-inch cubes.
Halve, pit, and peel avocados, then cut into 1/2-inch cubes.
Spread romaine over bottom of a 6- to 8-quart glass bowl and top with an even layer of chicken. Sprinkle bacon over chicken, then continue layering with tomatoes, cheese (to taste), avocados, watercress, eggs, and chives.
Just before serving, pour dressing over salad and toss.
