This is a lovely salad. So simple and the dressing makes it. Had cobb salad many times in America and this is definitely the best. Didn't have any buttermilk in so just looked online how to make it.

This is a really filling salad. I have this a couple of times a week now as it's just so simple, and the dressing you can make in advance and keep in a jar or bottle for the week (I really wouldn't recommend keeping it for longer than 5 days, it goes a bit gloopy).
