Here are the basic elements of the famous Cobb salad, put together in a slightly different way. Instead of crumbled blue cheese as a component, why not make a thick, tangy Roquefort dressing to top each serving? Use leftover roasted chicken breast or meat from a supermarket rotisserie bird.

To peel an avocado, first be sure it is ripe; it should give to slight pressure when squeezed. Cut the avocado in half lengthwise, through the stem end, all the way around. Twist apart the 2 halves, and the pit will remain in one half. Whack the pit with the sharp edge of a sharp knife—the blade should stick in the pit. Twist the knife to lift out the pit, pluck it off the blade, and discard it. Use a large metal serving spoon to scoop the avocado flesh in one piece from of each half; discard the peel.
