This Keto Cobb Salad Recipe is a healthy complete keto lunch made of chopped romaine lettuce, crisp bacon, roasted chicken breast, hard-boiled eggs, avocado, and Roquefort cheese.

Bonus, you can choose from a Red Wine Vinaigrette or Keto Ranch Dressing to serve this salad to your liking.

Is a cobb salad keto-friendly?

Yes, most Cobb Salads are keto-friendly apart from their dressing that often contains honey or sugar.

So if you go to a restaurant, order your salad without dressing and simply ask for olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper to make your own salad dressing on the side.

Also, a regular cobb salad contains many tomato slices and red onions that quickly up the carbs per serving.

So if you order one at the restaurant, go easy on these two ingredients!  Instead, focus on eating crunchy lettuce and all the good fat from avocado, bacon, chicken, and Roquefort cheese.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

  • Romaine lettuce – a cobb salad is made of a bed of crunchy green lettuce. You can also use other crunchy greens like iceberg lettuce, watercress, endives, all are keto-friendly vegetables.
  • Cherry tomatoes – a classic cobb salad uses a large number of tomatoes. In order to keep the net carbs low, this keto cobb salad use only a small amount of cherry tomatoes.
  • Red onions – they are high in carbs as well so the amount is also reduced in a keto cobb salad recipe to limit the net carbs per serving.
  • Roquefort cheese
  • Slice avocados
  • Bacon – I recommend streaky bacon slices cut into bits and fried until crispy.
  • Cooked chicken breast from a rotisserie chicken or grilled chicken breast.
  • Hard-boiled eggs
  • Fresh chives

Cook chicken, bacon, and eggs

First, boil the eggs in boiling water. Next, grill the chicken breast on a grill or BBQ until cooked through. Fry the bacon on a frying pan until crispy.

Set aside the cooked bacon and chicken on a plate to cool.

Cool the boiled eggs in cold water. Then peel and chopped in quarters.

Keto Cobb Salad dressing

A classic Cobb Salad dressing is served with a red wine vinegar dressing.

Red wine vinegar is keto-friendly but an authentic Cobb salad dressing contains sugar from honey, which adds up to your net carbs so not recommended on a keto diet.

Keto cobb salad recipe

Below I listed some delicious keto salad dressing recipe ideas you can use to serve this easy cobb salad recipe.

Red wine vinaigrette

In order to make a keto-friendly red wine vinaigrette you need the ingredients below:

  • Olive oil
  • Dijon mustard
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Sugar-free maple syrup or erythritol
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Dried parsley
  • Dried dill
  • Salt and pepper

To make the dressing, add all the ingredients in a glass mason jar, close the lid, and shake vigorously until the ingredients are well combined together.

Follow my Red Wine Vinaigrette recipe for all the measurements.

Ranch salad dressing

Another delicious way to serve this keto cobb salad is to add a drizzle of thick and creamy ranch salad dressing.

Also, on a keto diet we eat fat as a source of fuel, so adding a high-fat salad dressing is a great way to boost your fat intake and make this easy cobb salad more fulfilling.

You can make your own Keto Ranch Salad Dressing following my recipe here.

How to serve the Keto Cobb Salad?

It’s recommended to serve the salad with the dressing on the side, so you can store leftover salad for longer.

Simply serve the salad in a large salad bowl or serving board with the dressing in a side bowl.

How to store leftovers?

You can store this Keto Cobb Salad in an airtight container in the fridge for a maximum of 24 hours.

After that time the lettuce starts to wilt and the avocado becomes brown and bitter in flavor.
