Cobb Salad with Grains Recipe


  • 6 ounces bacon (about 6 slices), cut into 1-inch pieces (optional)
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallot (about 1/2 medium shallot)
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups watercress sprigs with tender stems
  • 3 cups mixed cooked grains (such as quinoa, semi-pearled farro, or wild rice), cooled
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, peeled, quartered
  • 1 ripe avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 tomato, preferably heirloom or vine ripened, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 1/4 cup crumbled fresh hard cheese (such as Cotija or ricotta salata)
  • 3 tablespoons 1-inch pieces fresh chives

Recipe Preparation

  • Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crispy and most of the fat is rendered, 7–8 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.

  • Whisk lemon juice, shallot, vinegar, Dijon mustard, garlic, and honey in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk in oil. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper.

  • Place watercress on a large platter. Arrange bacon, grains, eggs, avocado, tomato, cheese, and chives over. Drizzle with dressing.
