LETTUCE-FREE KETO COBB SALAD

Posted on

This Lettuce-Free Keto Cobb Salad has all the Cobb salad ingredients you love without the lettuce!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 eggs, hard-cooked and then diced
  • 2 cups cooked rotisserie chicken, cut into 3/4 inch cubes
  • 2 avocados, diced and tossed with lime juice
  • 12 slices bacon, cooked crisp and then crumbled (We used pre-cooked bacon that we crisped in the microwave.)
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes or cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • Blue Cheese Dressing of your choice (plus buttermilk, milk, half and half, or heavy cream to thin the dressing if desired.)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Use one of the methods for Perfect Hard-Cooked Eggs to cook the eggs while you prep the other ingredients. When they’re done, put the eggs into ice water to cool.
  2. Cut up the chicken into 3/4 inch pieces.
  3. Crisp bacon in the microwave for about 1 minutes (for pre-cooked bacon) or cook in a frying pan until crisp, then crumble the bacon.
  4. Cup up enough tomatoes or cherry tomatoes to make 1 cup of diced tomatoes.
  5. Crumble enough blue cheese (or Gorgonzola cheese) to make 1 cup crumbled blue cheese.
  6. As soon as eggs are cool, peel them and coarsely chop.
  7. Arrange the ingredients in rows in a glass serving dish (or just toss together in a bowl if you prefer.)
  8. If you want to thin the dressing, use equal parts purchased blue cheese dressing and buttermilk, milk, half and half or heavy cream. You can adjust it to your own preference, I like slightly more dressing than buttermilk when I make it.
  9. Serve salad with dressing on the side for each person to drizzle over as they eat it.
