History

The Cobb salad is named after American restaurant owner Robert Howard Cobb. There are different stories whether the salad was invented by Cobb himself or by his chef, Paul J. Posti. According to the legend, Cobb mixed together leftovers he found in the kitchen on a late night and we all know what happened afterwards - the result was so great that the salad became an instant classic.

    This salad is delicious! It seems really large to for 2 servings, even after having two large plates there was still more left!

    The one serving I had would have served two!

    Why does this recipe say half a chicken (and not grams) for four meals? We ended up with a tiny chicken and after preparing, it weighed less than a kilogram. So half a chicken meant 500g of chicken into four meals. I don't get how this is much? Sorry but hubby and I are starving!

    Hi

    I have just started Keto. I do not eat pork what could be the best alternative of bacon as a lot of receipes have bacon as main ingredient. Can I replace pork bacon with Turkey's bacon?

    Yes, you can use turkey or beef bacon. They just don't have as much fat so you may choose to add fats based on the rest of the recipe.

    Hi,
    I'm a bit confused with the serving suggestions.
    My email today said 2 servings per person, does that mean I make 4 servings to include lunch tomorrow? I'm just making sure that this is correct as I haven't seen the suggestion of 2 servings per person yet.
    Thank you

    This recipe as written, makes 2 servings. If you need 1+1 (dinner and lunch) for just one person, you can follow the recipe as written. If there are 2 of you taking the challenge, make a double batch.

    Just a side note , it would be more helpful knowing oz. for the chicken since roasters come in various sizes. All in all the recipe is very good and a filling and enjoyable dinner and lunch.

    Are there any good substitutes for avocados? If so, in what quantity per single serving? I'm allergic to avocados.

    Not really, they are unique blend of fats and low carb. You could try olives as they do have fats but it's certainly not going to be the same taste or texture.

    Wow am ready !!!

    I have to agree with those who have said it would be helpful to have a quantity of chicken by weight rather than just half a chicken. I just had this for dinner and while I enjoyed it, the amount of chicken was excessive and I was stuffed before being able to finish my plate!

    7g carbs per serving. When the salad is made, split it into half. Eat one serving tonight and one for lunch the next day.

    Thank you for the reply Kristin!
    I am cooking for one person so to buy an entire rotisserie chicken makes no sense. How many ounces of raw chicken per serving? Thank you in advance

    4-6 ounces is a standard protein serving. Thighs will have less protein and more fat than breast.
