What is Cobb Salad?

This isn’t your typical side dish; it’s a substantial meal in itself. This salad is renowned for its generous portions and diverse ingredients. Traditionally, Cobb Salads feature a mix of greens, tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs, bacon, chicken, avocado, and cheese. While the original recipe calls for a blend of lettuces including watercress, endives, iceberg, and romaine, our modern twist incorporates a convenient salad mix to simplify preparation without sacrificing flavor.

Preparing the Perfect Cobb Salad

Start with a base of crisp greens, such as a spring mix, for a refreshing foundation. Enhance the salad’s visual appeal and texture by incorporating the classic ingredients of hard-boiled eggs, grilled chicken breast, cherry tomatoes, bacon, avocados, and a duo of cheeses – feta and cheddar.
