This is my easy delicious Cobb salad recipe! You’ll find it colorful, flavorful and delightful to make.
I periodically consume this delicious salad when I go to restaurants. I can’t help myself because I love everything on it.
I do prefer to have my own version of the Cobb salad because even though I will eat it out, I want to control what I put on it. At home, I can use organic ingredients.
I love my organic ingredients. The only thing on this salad that isn’t organic is the blue cheese. Everything else is.

How to make the easy Cobb salad
The above photo shows the complete ingredients for my Cobb salad.
I do my cooking the day before I want to assemble and serve it. For one thing, I prefer to do my cooking ahead of time. For another, the ingredients will all be nicely chilled. Of course, you can cook what you need the same day and still have a chilled salad so if that’s more convenient for you, I say go for it.
I love using chicken thighs in my Cobb salad because they are more moist than breast meat, in my opinion. Here is my chicken thigh recipe.
I boil enough eggs to put one in each salad I’m going to make.
I fry five slices of bacon.
All that I do ahead of time.
On the day I’m going to make the salad, I slice up two chicken thighs. I take my five slices of bacon and cut them into small pieces. I also slice two hard boiled eggs and gather my baby romaine lettuce, crumbled blue cheese and some grape tomatoes.
You will notice that there is an avocado in the photo above, but I don’t use it for the salad. It was on the counter with the other ingredients so it made a cameo into the shot. Who doesn’t like a good cameo?
I get two salad bowls out and place the baby romaine lettuce in them.
I get the slices of chicken thighs and place them in a row on the romaine lettuce.
Next up is the crumbled bacon. I line it right next to the chicken thighs.
Looking good! Time to pile on the sliced eggs. One egg per salad.
We can’t stop yet! Let’s place some crumbled blue cheese onto there.
All that is left is the grape tomatoes.
We can now dress this lovely salad with some blue cheese dressing.
Christopher is great at pouring dressing. So, I elicit his help.
Time to eat
Here’s the salad all dressed and ready to be consumed.
Yum-yum! Time for Christopher and I to dig in.
I hope you enjoyed this Cobb salad recipe!
