A typical Cobb salad contains romaine, eggs, chicken or turkey, bacon, avocado, and tomato. Cobb salad wraps turn the traditional salad into a delicious sandwich.
A classic chicken Cobb salad is a good salad to take for lunch, as you can make it ahead of time and it tastes as good at room temperature as it does cold. But make it into a wrap and it’s a complete, hearty one-dish meal that travels well. This is one of my favorite recipes. It’s one of those delicious recipes you’ll make again and again without ever getting tired of it.
What Is A Cobb Salad Wrap?
If you’ve never had a Cobb salad before, you’re in for a treat with this wrap. A cobb salad has all the toppings mentioned above, wrapped up in a handy tortilla or wrap. This makes it super portable and easy to take for a healthy lunch.
Is a Cobb Salad Wrap Healthy?
Definitely! While the term “healthy” is subjective, for most people, this particular recipe is definitely healthy. It calls for a whole grain wrap, fresh vegetables, a hard boiled egg, and lean chicken. The bacon is optional, and if you decide to use it, there are even healthy options for that!
Many people don’t consider pork to be clean or healthy. And I totally understand why. That being said, by clean eating “rules”, pork is perfectly clean as long as it’s just plain meat that isn’t processed. (Just like a piece of chicken or beef). That being said, there are definitely packages of bacon out there that do not qualify as clean. In fact, most of them are not “clean”. So what do you choose? You have a few options.
- Wellshire Farms No Sugar Bacon – This is a pork product, but is minimally processed and has no ingredients in it that would be considered “unclean” (I hate using that term, but you get what I’m saying…. I hope.) This one is a little pricier, but it’s absolutely delicious bacon. My best friend calls it “candy bacon”. It’s that good. Last time I purchased it at Whole Foods, it was around $7 a package.
- Applegate Uncured Turkey Bacon – Here again, we have a clean ingredients list and the meat is minimally processed. Last time I purchased it at Publix, it was about $5 a package.
- Local bacon – Find a local source for bacon. A farmer you can speak with face to face so you know what goes into the meat and how it’s handled and processed. This can be either much more expensive, or much cheaper than store-bought bacon. It all depends on the farmer.
- Dressing – Such as ranch dressing, 1000 Island dressing or even blue cheese vinaigrette.
- Fresh chives, chopped
- Grated cheese, such as cheddar
Ingredient Variations For Different Diets
If you follow a particular eating plan, here are some adjustments you can make with this recipe.
Vegetarian Cobb Salad Wraps
- Omit the chicken. Sub with vegan chicken, extra egg and cheese, or with portobello mushrooms.
- Make sure your wrap is vegetarian.
Vegan Cobb Salad Wraps
- Omit the eggs
- Use vegan cheese (if you want cheese. This recipe does not call for it)
- Use a vegan chicken or use portobello mushrooms in place of chicken
Keto Cobb Salad Wraps
- Use a keto wrap or egg wrap.
- Use extra cheese and cook your chicken with plenty of healthy fats.
Dairy-Free Cobb Salad Wraps
- Avoid the blue cheese all together. Use a dairy-free dressing to replace the flavor added by the blue cheese.
- Make sure your tortilla is dairy-free.
Gluten-Free Cobb Salad Wraps
- Use a gluten-free wrap/tortilla.
You can add, mix in or season your wrap with these extras if you wish.
- Chili powder – For a southwestern sort of flare
- Cayenne pepper – For a spicy wrap.
- Black pepper – For a milder spice than cayenne.
- ¼ cups mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard – Spread if over your wrap before adding any of the other toppings.
- Other fresh veggies – Any you prefer. Red bell peppers, mushrooms, broccoli or cauliflower are all good choices.
- Mozzarella cheese
- Cheddar cheese
Cobb Salad Wraps Ingredient Checklist
3 standard whole-grain tortillas – See other options above. Any wrap you prefer to use will work here.
¾ cup thinly sliced lettuce – Any type. I used Romaine lettuce.
2 large hard-boiled eggs – Cooked and cooled ahead of time. Slice and divide between 3 wraps. If you prefer, you can use 4 egg whites instead and simply scramble them.
6 tbsp. minced red onion – Yellow onion will work too. 2 tbsp. per wrap.
1 medium avocado – Divided into thirds. (or 3 small, ripe avocados – 1 for each wrap.)
½ cup chopped tomatoes – Divided into 3 portions.
½ lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast – cooked any way you like, then shredded. Chopped chicken cut into bite-size pieces will also work if you don’t want to do the work of shredding it. You can combine chicken and any spices you prefer for cooking, baking or even air frying. I cooked mine in a skillet. How you cook the chicken doesn’t really mater. And if you opt for a different cut of chicken, just make sure it’s a lean meat (unless you are keto).
6 tbsp. blue cheese crumbles – 2 tbsp. per wrap.
How To Make Cobb Salad Wraps
Lay a tortilla on a plate.
Layer with lettuce, sliced hard-boiled egg, and minced onions.
Add the sliced avocado, shredded chicken, and blue cheese crumbles. Season with a pinch of salt if needed. You can also use a light sprinkle of garlic powder if you like that.
Roll up your wrap.
Slice the wrap in half.
How To Store Cobb Salad Wraps
Wrap these up tight in foil, plastic wrap, or parchment paper and store in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Store without any added dressing. If you have a hard time keeping the wraps closed, you can pin them closed with toothpicks. Just remember to remove it before you eat your wrap!
How To Reheat Cobb Salad Wraps
These do not require reheating. They are delicious cold, straight from the fridge. But if you don’t like them cold, simply let them come to room temperature by setting them on a countertop for about 20-30 minutes. But never let it sit out of the fridge for longer than 1½ hours.

You’ll need a good cutting board for chopping the eggs and veggies. Possibly a baking pan for cooking the chicken and a good knife to cut it all up. Keep a paper towel handy as well for easy clean ups.
