Deli Cobb Salad
with creamy yogurt dressing

Active: 25 minTotal: 25 min

I love hearty salads during the summer, and one shortcut I love to use is to take advantage of deli meat. It's a quick and easy way to add some protein to an easy dinner.


Deli Cobb Salad:
  • Eggs - 4
  • Deli meat - 1 lb, chopped ((your choice - I like turkey))
  • Cherry tomatoes - 2/3 pint, halve
  • Corn - 3 cobs, kernels shaved off
  • Romaine hearts - 2, chopped
  • Yogurt, plain or Greek - 1/4 cup
  • Olive oil - 1/3 cup
  • Lemon juice - 1/3 cup
  • Garlic - 1 clove, peeled
  • Cilantro - 1/4 bunch
  • Avocado, small - 2, cubed

  1. Make hardboiled eggs - Cover eggs with cold water and some salt. 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. Roll egg against a hard, flat surfact to break up shell, and then peel. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Deli meat / Tomatoes / Corn / Romaine - Prep as directed. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  3. Make dressing - Blend yogurt, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and cilantro in a blender or using an immersion blender. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)

Very good. I take issue with the directions a bit. 3/8 a bunch of cilantro is not a really a unit of measurement.

If you like the cilantro dressing from Trader Joe's the yogurt dressing in this recipe is a really good substitute!! (and I'm sure it is healthier than the TJ version) I LOVE this salad!!! I used bacon instead of lunchmeat and it was perfect

So easy, and at first (well, after I got over the horror of having a salad for dinner), I just thought it was good... But then I found myself craving the leftovers the next night! Will do again (and I had to google how to cook corn, haha, but so worth it!)
