Chicken breast, blue cheese, vegetables and fruit with creamy cider dressing: an easy Cobb salad recipe by chef Mayet Cristobal, from the Getty Museum restaurant.
Marinate the chicken breast with olive oil, tarragon, shallots and a touch of lemon; roast in the oven, cool and dice.
Soak the sundried cranberries in warm sugar water for about 10 minutes.
Mix in a large bowl with the other ingredients.
Creamy cider dressing
Mix mayo, apple juice, cider vinegar, honey.
Pre-cook chopped rosemary and savoury in olive oil.
Add to dressing while still warm.
It is important to precook the herbs because they are hard herbs and this will release the flavour.
How to serve your Cobb salad
Garnish the salad with the creamy cider dressing and serve.
Tips & tricks
- If possible, use free-range chicken breast.
- Instead of Maytag cheese you can use any other blue cheese, and substitute Fuji with any tart apple.
