Cobb Salad {Back to School Recipe}

Cobb Salad Recipe
Back to school, back to school! It’s a busy time for kids and parents alike, and that’s without worrying about mealtime. While it can be tempting to dip into last year’s repertoire, why not try fuelling the family with some fresh new dishes?

Check out another one of Chef Paul Mon-Kau’s favourite super easy and satisfying recipes below:

Cobb Salad Recipe

Cobb Salad Recipe


  • ½ head of Romaine lettuce
  • ½ Avocado
  • 1 ½ ounces Blue cheese
  • ½ Roma Tomato diced
  • 2 ounces Bacon Chopped
  • 1 hard boiled egg
  • Ranch dressing


1) Place romaine on a large plate and add avocado, tomato, blue cheese, bacon and egg.

2) Drizzle it with ranch dressing and make a new friend!


Paul’s Tip: This is stolen from my mother-in-law: keep left over avocado in a sealed container with some cut up red onion and it doesn’t brown!

  1. Yummy! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Love avocados! Great recipe.

  3. I don’t like Avocados but do love a good salad 🙂

  4. THIS is what I want for MY lunch today. I’d have to add more avocado, and a different cheese as I’m not a fan of blue cheese.

    I’m pretty certain my 2yr old would love this too! Unlike my first born, she loves trying new foods.

  5. We had this salad yesterday and it was really good! Even my kids had some, which is a big big deal…probably because they got extra bacon!

  6. yummy looks so delish , thanks for sharing a must try 🙂

  13. Inspired me enough to make yet another trip to Safeway – salad snack this afternoon. Funny how that works, subliminal – yesterday I saw so many posts on pumpkin pie that I broke down and went shopping again. LOL

  27. nice presentation makes the meal even more tasty

  28. Now all I have to do is wait for summer to come then I will have at least one recipe to do

  29. I am trying to feed my family a really healthy diet this year and I find one of the best way to eat vegetables is to try a variety of salads. I have eaten Cobb Salad before but I do not remember putting or having avocado in it. This is the salad I hope to have as one of my staples this year. Thank you, again, for this recipe.

  30. I love this idea for an awesome salad.I have been trying to work avocados into my diet and this will work perfectly for me.

  31. ..Thanks for sharing this tasty recipe…tasty

  32. I really enjoyed this Cobb Salad Recipe

  33. I love a good Cobb Salad.Thanks

  34. We had this salad last week and it was really good!…

  35. I like everything but the avocado because for some reason I don’t like the texture of the avocado. I like the egg and blue cheese the most but I’d probably add cottage cheese in there.

  36. This Cobb Salad seems fairly easy to make. One could add cut up chicken nor beef to it as well. Thank you for this recipe.

  37. I would totally change out the cheese and give options for dressing but I have to ask you if your kids will actually eat the blue cheese???

  38. I am definitely bookmarking this for the summer. I am always on the hunt for easily adaptable meals as we have a super picky eater. This way she can just pick the items she wants to eat and the rest of us still get a yummy meal too.

  39. The salad looks so good I love the tip to get avocado from browning now I dont have to use the whole avocado at once thanks
