  1. Make hardboiled eggs - Cover eggs with cold water and some salt. Bring to a boil and then turn off heat. Let eggs sit in hot water for 11 minutes and then run in cold water for easier peeling. Roll egg against a hard, flat surface to break up shell, and then peel. If making ahead of time, peel right before serving. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Deli meat / Tomatoes / Corn (if using fresh) / Romaine - Prep as directed. Tomatoes and corn can be stored together. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  3. Make dressing - Blend yogurt, oil, lemon juice, garlic, and cilantro in a blender or using an immersion blender. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)


  1. Cube avocado and chop eggs.
  2. Form a bed of romaine lettuce and layer all other ingredients on top - deli meat, tomatoes, corn, avocado and eggs. Let everyone dress their own salad.

Forgot to get cilantro so the dressing was too sour for my husband's tastes. I liked the fresh hard boiled egg a lot. Used 2 oz. of prosciutto instead of a pound of deli meat -- very good.

Not a big fan of cilantro so I used dill instead and it was really tasty

I followed the recipe pretty closely. Used ham. Forgot the corn in the microwave (oops) so we will have some in our lunches tomorrow. I also added roasted sweet potatoes a la the steak salad with roasted sweet potatoes from the archives. Ham and sweet potatoes are a winner at Thanksgiving and in August :)

Very good! I forgot how much I like Cobb salads! Not my husband's favorite, but he liked it okay. Didn't have time to make dressing, but I'll try it next time!
