The EatingWell Cobb Salad


From EatingWell:  April/May 2006, EatingWell Serves Two, EatingWell Comfort Foods Made Healthy: The Classic Makeover Cookbook (2009), The EatingWell Diet (2007)

This Cobb salad is true to the original with all the good stuff—chicken, eggs, bacon, avocado and a tangy dressing. But we cut the saturated fat in half and doubled the amount of healthy monounsaturated fat. We've left the blue cheese optional, but the salad is so nutritious you might just want to go ahead and indulge yourself with a little bit anyway.

4 servings | Active Time: 40 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes



  1. Whisk vinegar, shallot, mustard, pepper and salt 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.
  2. Divide the greens among 4 plates. Arrange equal portions of chicken, egg, tomatoes, cucumber, avocado, bacon and blue cheese (if using) on top of the lettuce. Drizzle the salads with the remaining dressing.
