Summer Deli Cobb Salad
with creamy herb dressing
Cobb salad is a classic, and this version, last featured in a meal plan in 2021, is topped with a creamy dressing that we turn to time and again. It's great on salads, as well as for dipping vegetables and pita chips.
- Eggs - 4
- Deli meat - 3/4 lb, chopped (like roast turkey or ham)
- Tomatoes, cherry or grape - 10 oz, halved
- Corn kernels, fresh or frozen - 1 1/2 cups
- Lettuce, romaine - 8 oz, chopped (sub any salad greens)
- Avocados - 2, cubed
- Creamy herb dressing (ingredients listed separately) - 2/3 cup
- Garlic - 1 clove, peeled
- Yogurt, plain or Greek - 4 Tbsp
- Oil, cooking - 4 Tbsp
- Lemon juice - 1 Tbsp
- Dill, fresh - 1/2 tsp, chopped
Make hard boiled eggs - Cover eggs with cold water and some salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and then turn off heat. Let eggs sit in hot water for 11 minutes and then run in cold water for easier peeling. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
Corn (if using frozen) - Defrost corn in the microwave.
Avocados. Cube avocados.
Peel and chop eggs.
Form a bed of lettuce and layer all other ingredients on top - deli meat, tomatoes, corn, avocados, and eggs.
Serve salad with dressing on the side so everyone can dress their own. Enjoy!

Always love this salad whenever it comes up.0 Helpful
Dressing had way too much garlic and was spicy and kind of yucky. Use a smaller clove or garlic powder next time!0 Helpful
Tasty, but we had to somewhat thin the dressing and add salt to cut the strong garlic flavor. Used diced pancetta to save time on prep. A sprinkle of salt and pepper over the final salads made a HUGE difference in flavor.0 Helpful
