    Directions

    To make the dressing:
    Whisk together the grated cheese, vinegar, and mustard. In a slow steady stream, whisk in the olive oil until emulsified. Season the vinaigrette with salt, and pepper to taste.

    To make the salad:

    Rinse and dry all the salad greens, and toss them together in a large bowl. Arrange the chicken, bacon, avocado, tomato, and Roquefort in uniform rows on top the mixed greens. Garnish with the grated hard-boiled egg, and chives.

    Just before serving, pour the dressing over the salad and toss.

      Love this salad. The only things I did differently were not to dress the salad, I served this to a group of co-workers and I wasn't sure every one wanted the same dressing. I did take the dressing with me and a ranch dressing also. I sliced eggs and added a row of them in addition to the grated on top. I also took and extra bowl of greens. I put it all on and oblong platter and used a spatula to partion the portions. It was a great hit for my health minded co-workers
