Keto Cobb Salad with Homemade Ranch Dressing

Who doesn’t love a fresh and healthy Cobb salad? This tasty Keto Cobb Salad is low carb and served up with a homemade ranch dressing that will have you dipping everything within reach!

Admittedly, I’ve spent the last month or two noshing on comfort foods. Hey, they’re called “comfort” for a reason, right?

But now, it’s time to get back into the swing of things with healthier choices, like this filling salad.

I promise, promise you won’t feel one bit deprived when you eat this salad. If there were only one salad I could ever eat again, this might just be the one!

What goes in Keto Cobb Salad?

Let’s just talk about a few of the star players going down here in our cobb salad with chicken. You can use rotisserie chicken from the grocery store or you can make your own rotisserie style chicken at home.

Have leftover grilled chicken from the weekend barbecue? Go for it!

Crispy bacon – YES! Psst…..Check out my tried and true oven baked bacon recipe and keep your stovetop clean!

Hard boiled eggs – Love ’em!

Cool and crunchy veggies – because it’s SALAD!

Blue cheese – yes? or no? I happen to love it but you can use goat cheese, no cheese, cheddar cheese. All cheese is amazeballs in my eyes.

Ohhhhhh and let’s just talk about the ranch. Yes, the ingredient list looks long, but that’s truly what ranch dressing is.

It’s herbs, spices, and a gloriously creamy base. But here’s the better news.

I LOVE making this salad dressing with fresh herbs from my garden in the summertime. But the rest of the year, I assure you, I don’t always have fresh herbs hanging out.

So feel free to substitute dried spices in the recipe.

To substitute dried spices for fresh, use half the amount.

  • fresh chives – substitute just under 2 tsp freeze dried chives
  • fresh dill – substitute 1.5 tsp
  • fresh parsley – substitute 1.5 tsp

I’ve added a note to the recipe card so you’ll know just how much to substitute!

Idea: Turn the cobb salad into a salad by making and adding to a low carb wrap, or turn it into a lettuce wrap!
