  • 1/3 cup sliced red onion
  • 1/3 avocado, sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons minced fresh chives
  • 1/4 cup crumbled roquefort cheese

  1. Start with greens. Iceberg or romaine lettuce and some watercress or arugula tossed in.

  2. Then there are the veggies - Red onions, chopped tomato and some good old California avocado - and some chives at the end on top of it all.

  3. Then the protein - Roquefort cheese (some use bleu cheese, but to be authentic you need roquefort), Crumbled bacon, hard boiled eggs and diced chicken.

  4. Top with vinaigrette

  1. Whisk all the ingredients together until they are well blended and emulsified.
