Chicken Cobb Salad with Buffalo Ranch

February 12, 2021

Jump To Recipe

The classic Cobb salad boasts a perfect balance of tastes and textures, which is why it's a crowd favorite. Made with a blend of proteins and produce accented with sharp, pungent blue cheese crumbles and a cool, creamy dressing, it's a delicious and easy-to-make meal.

If you like your food saucy and a little spicy, you’ll love the bold, fiery dressing of this Chicken Cobb Salad. To make it, we combined our cayenne-spiced Original Buffalo Sauce with velvety Ranch Dressing to provide the flavor of a deconstructed pub wing in a salad. You'll get all the classic taste of crisp Buffalo chicken wings with creamy blue cheese dressing in a produce-packed bowl—no messy deep-fried skin or bones to remove.

What is a Cobb Salad? 

The classic Cobb salad is made with chicken breast (often fried), hardboiled eggs, tomato, bacon, green onion or chives, blue cheese, and avocado—all served atop a bed of mixed greens and paired with a vinaigrette or creamy dressing. Cobb salad can sometimes be confused with chef salad because they both contain lettuce, meat(s), cheese, and eggs, but the latter is typically made with deli turkey and ham, plus strips of cheddar or Swiss cheese. 

Our protein-heavy Chicken Cobb Salad features crisp romaine, snappy celery, a bit of buttery avocado, half a handful of cherry tomatoes, and plenty of protein from the skillet-cooked chicken thigh and sliced hardboiled egg. A handful of blue cheese crumbles adds enough salty bite that we didn’t need to add bacon, but feel free to customize it with turkey bacon or your favorite salty cured meat.

For the dressing, we combined our feisty, medium-heat Original Buffalo Sauce with velvety Ranch to tame the cayenne pepper sauce bite. If you prefer to start with a ready-made dressing, our Buffalo Ranch and Dreamy Italian dressings pair equally well with this salad. You can also mix up a simple, keto-friendly homemade dressing with your favorite oil whisked with apple cider vinegar or white wine vinegar and a teaspoon of chopped fresh herbs.
