Once you top off the salad tasty and simple honey mustard dressing, this salad will be your next go-to salad for lunch or side for dinner.

What Do You Put in a Cobb Salad?

This recipe is full of fresh, healthy, and tasty ingredients. For this recipe, you need:

  • 5 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 2 cups hard boiled eggs, sliced or cut
  • 2 grilled chicken breasts, sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup red onion, sliced
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • ½ cup blue cheese, crumbled

Instead of grilling the chicken, you can cook it in the air fryer. I love cooking chicken breasts in the air fryer because it takes less time and the chicken is so juicy! This air fryer chicken breast recipe is perfect for a cobb salad.

You can also cook your bacon in the air fryer or the oven. While the bacon cooks, make the perfect hard boiled eggs in the Instant Pot!

How to Make the Best Homemade Honey Mustard Dressing

You are going to love this honey mustard dressing on your cobb salad.  Not only are the ingredients simple, but it is so quick to make. The ingredients you will need for a cobb salad dressing are:

  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

Whisk together the ingredients until well combined. Another option, if you have one, is to use an immersion blender to mix the ingredients together instead of using a whisk. I love using my immersion blender because I know it thoroughly mixes the ingredients. I mix the ingredients together in a mason jar. This makes serving and storing the dressing much easier.

How to Prepare a Cobb Salad?

Once your ingredients are all prepared for the salad and salad dressing, assemble the salad ingredients in a large bowl. You can top the lettuce with other ingredients displayed on top, or toss to combine.

Serving Suggestions

If you are serving this salad for a large group, you can either combine everything in a large bowl or you can keep all the ingredients separate so everyone can choose their own toppings. This is a great way to ensure that everyone enjoys their cobb salad.

You can also meal prep the ingredients for the cobb salad and enjoy this salad during the week for lunch or dinner. I love using these salad containers to prepare single serving salads beforehand. I also love these glass containers to hold the ingredients individually. Then, I prepare the salad the day of.

This cobb salad is truly perfect because it is adaptable for so many different situations.

Final Thoughts

A healthy and hearty cobb salad is the perfect side to any dinner such as parmesan chicken, chicken alfredo, or air fryer mac and cheese.
