Originally developed at a Hollywood restaurant, this classic salad has endured endless interpretation. Our version is fairly true to the original, although we've left the blue cheese optional. Make it a Meal: warm up a crusty baguette and pour a crisp, cold glass of sparkling wine to accompany this salad.
3 tablespoons  white-wine vinegar
2 tablespoons  finely minced shallot
1 tablespoon  Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon  salt
1 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
3 tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil
10 cups  mixed salad greens
1/2 pound  shredded cooked chicken breast (1 large breast half) (see Tip)
2   eggs, hard-boiled, peeled and chopped (see Tip)
2 strips  bacon, cooked and crumbled
2   medium tomatoes, diced
1   large cucumber, seeded and sliced
1   avocado, diced
1/2 cup  crumbled blue cheese (optional)

To poach chicken breast: Place boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a medium skillet or saucepan and add lightly salted water to cover; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes.

To hard-boil eggs: Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, pour out hot water and run a constant stream of cold water over the eggs until completely cooled.

Whisk vinegar, shallot, mustard, salt and pepper in a small bowl to combine. Whisk in oil until combined. Place salad greens in a large bowl. Add half of the dressing and toss to coat.

Divide salad greens among 4 plates. Arrange equal portions of chicken, egg, bacon, tomatoes, cucumber, avocado and blue cheese (if using) on top of the lettuce. Drizzle the salads with the remaining dressing.
