With eggs, bacon, chicken, and avocado, the cobb salad is already keto friendly. I tried pairing it with a traditional red wine vinaigrette and it was out of this world. I also added in a little sugar substitute to the dressing, to sweeten it up, and it was delightful.
This is one of the better salads to have if you are near your carb limit for the day as one serving is only 2.4 net carbs! The entire cobb salad is only 26 carbs in total. It is also perfect for those who need an extra boost of fat of protein.
The cobb salad is super easy to make. You can take it to work or prepare it for dinner but keep the dressing separate otherwise it might get a little soggy.
