Low Carb Cobb Salad

Low Carb Cobb SaladI found this somewhere on the internet-a way to remember the components of Cobb Salad. Use the mnemonic EAT COBB: Egg, Avocado, Tomato, Chicken, Onion, Bacon, Bleu Cheese.

This is a very simple and elegant salad to serve as a main dinner entrée. I served this in the restaurant to rave reviews.

The description below is how I arranged my ingredients and there are a lot of arrangements so just pick your favorite. The ideal is to have a different flavor or combination of flavors with each bite of salad.

I served mine with Caesar Dressing (traditional) and you can serve it with your own favorite dressing. If you are inclined to Caesar then the recipe is here: Caesar Salad Dressing

I have eaten many a Cobb Salad in my day and I have traveled many times between Portland & Seattle and there is a little joint off the I-5 in the middle of nowhere called Spiffy’s that has the best Cobb Salad (besides my own) that I have ever had so…if you are every up this way stop in and try one…with the Caesar dressing.

  1. “IF” you have nice large oval plates this would be the time to use them.
  2. Pile as much lettuce as you can get on the plate-at least 4C.
  3. Arrange your ingredients artfully around the edge of the salad then drizzle dressing all over everything. For company, a nice garnish might be a couple of cheese crisps tucked in at both ends along with a couple wedges of lemon.

Notes
  1. You may certainly use any lettuce you like but my favorite for this is Spring Mix with a little Romaine mixed in for crunch.
  2. I think there are several other nice additions (but definitely not traditional) to this salad and they coud be ¼ C bay shrimp, ¼ C Black Olives, & a handful of crispy mung bean sprouts.
