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.

3 Reviews for The EatingWell Cobb Salad

One of our favorite summer meals

This has become a go to summer meal for us. We use leftover grocery store rotisserie chicken or cook extra chicken when grilling something else. I do not care for blue cheese so I use feta. My hubby likes to add pickled beets, olives, and sweet cherry peppers. Yum!


Does the nutritional summary include the optional blue cheese? I dont eat blue cheese. Also can it be substituted for 1 oz. part skim mozzerella cheese?

The Eating Well Cobb Salad

This salad tasted so good, it will definitely good on my lunch rotation. Poached the chicken and boiled the eggs while having my morning coffee. Salad came together quickly once that was done. The dressing was definitely worth making.
