This is simply the Best Cobb Salad Recipe. It is the perfect summer salad. Tender, juicy chicken, smokey ham and bacon, avocado, tomatoes, hard-boiled egg, blue cheese crumbles, olives, mushrooms, and red onions, all arranged on a bed of romaine lettuce and then tossed with Avocado Ranch Dressing. 


Units Scale
  • 1 large head romaine lettuce, shredded
  • 1/2 pound chicken breast, cooked and cubed small
  • 1 cup diced ham
  • 6 strips bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
  • 2 hardboiled eggs, chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1 avocado, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives
  • 4 small button mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • Avocado Ranch dressing, for serving


  1. On a large serving platter, spread the lettuce out in an even layer. 
  2. Arrange the rest of the ingredients in even rows across the top of the lettuce. 


  • Make ahead: If you want to make this ahead of time I recommend storing all ingredients separately and then building the salad right before you are ready to serve it. 
  • Storage: Store leftover keto Cobb salad undressed in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. 
  • How to cook the perfect hard-boiled egg: Place the eggs in a large sauce pan with cold water.  Add enough water that the eggs are fully submerged. Over high heat bring water to a rolling boil.  Once the water is boiling, remove the pan from the heat, cover and let sit for 12 minutes. Run each egg under cold water and peel immediately.
