Salad dressing for chef-sy salad?

Six o'clock and it's getting hotter. We're really not salad people, but a kinda-chef's salad sound right for today. I've got lettuce, tomatoes, avo, chicken, ham, hb eggs. What type of dressing goes best? Thanks alot!
I'd give the lettuce a light bath in good olive oil, add some cheese (chunky bits of a good gorgonzola?), and call dinner.
I personally would go with a good Blue Cheese Dressing. If not homemade then maybe a "Marie's". Stay away from Kraft etc... Usually any dressing in the refridgerated section in the vegetable/fruit area tend to be much higher quality and have interesting selections.
Saying that, a Balsamic Vinegrette is easy to make at home and always tasty.
Into a food processor: equal parts Roquefort, mayo, sour cream. Add a squirt of lemon juice and a generous grind of black pepper. Stay away from the bottled stuff -- most of it's full of chemicals.
I think that a homemade Thousand Island or Russian dressing would go well with these ingredients....Use a good mayo, chili sauce, sweet pickle if you like, parsley, worcestershire sauce, a dash of Tabasco, a dash of garlic...thin with a little water if you like and adjust seasonings...salt, pepper
