What’s to love about Cobb Salad?

  • I love that a cobb salad can be eaten as a main dish. Because it has bacon, chicken, egg, and cheese, it makes a filling meal. Perfect for a light summer dinner.
  • You can stick to the traditional ingredients of avocado, chicken, bacon, and egg, or you can use what you have on hand.
  • Typically a cobb salad is arranged on a platter with the ingredients in rows, but I love mixing them all together in a chopped salad. It’s easier to eat, better for serving a crowd, and you are sure to get lots of flavors in every bite.

Can Chopped Cobb Salad be made in advance?

  • The dressing can be made up to a week in advance. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • The ingredients can all be chopped ahead of time and refrigerated in seperate containers. I don’t recommend mixing the ingredients together until slightly before serving so the lettuce stays fresh and crunchy.

Cobb Salad Dressing

The dressing is a simple vinaigrette flavored with garlic. It also has a little mayonnaise added to give it a little creaminess.  Since cobb salad is a heavier salad, I like a lighter dressing on it. A bottled Ranch dressing or Blue Cheese dressing can be used instead.

Recipe Tips:

This recipe is easily customizable.

  • Cucumbers, red bell pepper, or radishes make a great addition.
  • Use mixed greens or iceberg lettuce instead of romaine.
  • Don’t like blue cheese? Try using feta cheese or shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Some toasted walnuts, pecans, or almonds are a great addition.
  • I also love to sprinkle a spoonful of hemp seeds on my salad. They are full of good nutrition and have a great nutty flavor.
