Basic cobb

I've decided that the best way to get everyone to eat salad is to make it into a Cobb. It is so dang easy! There are many variations out there, but here's how I make mine.

Romaine, Iceburg and Green Leaf lettuce (1 head each, or half if you don't want it to be HUGE)
Shredded Cheddar Cheese (about a cup)
6-8 hard boiled eggs
1 cup crumbled bacon
1/2 cup fresh corn sliced from the cob (canned or frozen will work, but not taste as good, obviously)
1 chopped cucumber
1-2 chopped avocados (optional)

Wash and chop lettuce to bite size. Layer other ingredients as you please. We've tried this with many different veggie toppings, it always turns out great. The bacon is a must though.  My family likes Ranch dressing best with this, we make our own. It goes like this:

1 C. mayo
1 C. buttermilk
1/4 t. white vinegar
1/2 t. dill
1 t. parsley
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. onion powder
1 1/2 t. dried (or fresh) chives
1/4 t. seasoned salt
1/8 t. dry mustard
salt and pepper to taste

Whisk together mayo and buttermilk until mixture is lump free. Whisk in remaining ingredients. Refrigerate.
