Cat Cora’s Avocado Cobb Salad with Apricot Dressing

Cat Cora’s Avocado Cobb Salad with Apricot Dressing

Serves 6 to 8

 INGREDIENTS

Apricot dressing:

2 tablespoons champagne vinegar

¼ cup apricot base

1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

teaspoon chopped fresh thyme

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

8 cups chopped iceberg, romaine, or butter leaf lettuce

1 cup halved cherry tomatoes

2 large eggs, hard-boiled, peeled and halved

6 slices turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled

½ cup crumbled blue cheese

¼ cup pickled red onions

3 large firm avocados, halved, pitted, and peeled

 

INSTRUCTIONS

For the dressing: In a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar, apricot preserves, olive oil, thyme, and salt and pepper to taste. 

To assemble the salad: In a large bowl, toss the lettuce with the dressing. Transfer the dressed lettuce to a large platter. Carefully cut the avocados on the bias into thick slices and place them down the center of the salad. Spoon the bacon, tomatoes, onions and cheese around the avocado. Add the sliced egg and serve.

Pro tip: I like to grill the avocados first. For grilling, be sure to choose avocados that are still fairly firm; soft ones don’t work.

Chocolate Budino

Budino in Italian means pudding but this is more like a molten cake, moist and almost gooey in the middle when served warm from the oven. I like to serve the budino with a scoop of homemade Banana Chocolate-Chunk Ice Cream (in my cookbook, Cooking From the Hip), but it's also great with creme anglaise and fresh raspberries or strawberries.
