Can You Make Homemade Cobb Salad Ahead?

You can make parts of this Cobb salad recipe ahead of time, but wait to assemble and dress it right before serving so that it doesn’t get soggy.

I recommend making these items ahead of time and then freshly preparing the rest just prior to serving:

Bacon – To keep your bacon crisp, store it in an airtight container in the fridge.

Hard-Boiled Eggs – The best way to store hard-boiled eggs is to keep them in an airtight container, unpeeled. They can be stored like that for up to a week!

Chicken – Chicken can be prepared, and once cooled, stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Store whole and slice just prior to serving to keep the chicken moist!

Dressing – Homemade ranch dressing should be stored in an airtight container, such as a mason jar, and refrigerated for up to two weeks.

You can store the undressed salad components separately in airtight containers in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

About the Ingredients for the Keto Cobb Salad

Veggies – Romaine lettuce is typically used to make cobb salad, you can also include a mix of baby greens. In addition I added cucumber and avocado. Tomatoes are also keto friendly so you could include some fresh tomato slices or wedges – halved grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes work too.

Protein – Bacon, egg, and chicken are mainstays of any cobb salad, and they are very keto friendly too!

Toppings – We topped it all off with blue cheese and fresh chives but you could also include nuts or change up the cheese to your favourite!

Dressing – Our homemade ranch dressing is sugar free but full of amazing flavour! If you go with store bought dressing, make sure to check it is keto friendly.
