It wouldn’t be spring or summer without a large salad, like this Grilled Cobb Salad with Avocado Dressing!

Have you ever grilled lettuce before? It’s so delicious! Although, I’m a huge fan of burned edges, you know what I mean? 😉 I’m so excited to share this fun, delicious and colorful Grilled Cobb Salad recipe with you today!

I’m a bit of a chicken snob. If it’s not marinated and grilled, I don’t want it, lol! I’ve been really into plating things on boards, too. I think it looks so beautiful! Spreading the ingredients out and mixing up the colors is a lot of fun.

I invited one of my girlfriends over to help me put this together because she has a great eye for making pretty boards like this. This Grilled Cobb Salad with Avocado Dressing would be a perfect dish to serve guests or just a great lunch or dinner idea. Plus it’s gluten free!

Ingredients needed to make the best Cobb Salad EVER:

  • Romaine lettuce! I love coating it in a little bit of olive oil and salt and pepper and then charring for a couple minutes on each side.
  • Sliced grilled chicken for sure! I marinated my chicken in a yogurt and fresh lemon juice mixture. Yogurt is a great marinade item!
  • Fresh hard boiled eggs, sliced.
  • Colorful cherry tomatoes, sliced or quartered.
  • Crumbled up blue cheese goes great with this Cobb Salad! You could also use feta cheese if blue cheese isn’t your thing.
  • Bacon! Duh. You gotta have bacon on a Cobb Salad, am I right?!
  • Last but not least, California Avocados!
  • Not only do I love adding sliced avocados to the salad but I also used avocados in my avocado dressing. The cool avocado flavor really round out this dish.

I read somewhere that the difference between a Cobb Salad and a chefs salad is that a Cobb Salad has California Avocados and tomatoes! Kind of crazy, right? One thing I know for sure is this Gluten Free Grilled Cobb Salad with Avocado Dressing is seriously so delicious and healthy. It’s the perfect meal on a nice spring or summer day!
