Healthy Cobb Salad Recipe

This healthy Cobb salad is my new favorite way to make salads at home!

Cobb salad is something I’ve loved for a very long time. It’s a salad that is near and dear to my heart. I mean… bacon and blue cheese?? Who wouldn’t love that?

A Clean Eating Cobb Salad in a white bowl on a dark wood background. The salad is shown from over head, looking down into the bowl. The salad is unmixed so you can see each of the ingredients arranged nicely on top of the lettuce.

The truth is, on a limited basis, and using bacon from the correct source, there’s no reason not to use bacon in a clean eating plan. Same with real blue cheese.

That being said, I try to keep those things in moderation and out of my salads simply because I know I will want more and more of them. (Especially the cheese!) So I figured I’d come up with a cobb salad that was tasty without the addition of those two items. I will admit that if you want to add those two ingredients to this recipe, it would be downright delicious! But honestly, it really is just as good without. Different, but just as yummy.

Note: I used my Italian Salad Dressing on this salad and it was very good!
