Directions for: Lobster Cobb Salad



1 head iceberg lettuce, cut in wedges

6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and sliced

8 slices bacon, cooked until crisp, crumbled

2 cups (500 mL) watercress

2 avocados, halved, pitted and cubed

2 tomatoes, diced

meat from 2 steamed lobsters

salt and freshly cracked black pepper

1 cup (250 mL) blue cheese, crumbled


1 Tbsp (15 mL) red wine vinegar

1 Tbsp (15 mL0 Worcestershire sauce

1 Tbsp (15 mL) Dijon mustard

1 clove garlic, minced

salt and freshly cracked black pepper

2 hard-boiled egg yolks

½ cup (125 mL) olive oil

approx. 2 Tbsp (30 mL) fresh chives, finely chopped



1. Make a bed of lettuce on a platter, in a shallow serving bowl, or on individual plates. Arrange over the lettuce, in rows or in a checkerboard pattern, the eggs, bacon, watercress, avocados, tomatoes, and lobster meat, covering the lettuce almost completely. Season with salt and pepper.


1. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, maple syrup, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste.

2. Using a fork, mash in the egg yolks to make a paste.

3. While whisking, slowly drizzle in the olive oil to form a thick dressing. Stir in the chives.

4. To serve, pour some of the dressing over the salad. Sprinkle with the blue cheese. Serve the remaining dressing on the side.
