What to Serve Your Chicken Cobb Salad With

This salad is filling and plenty enough to eat on its own. However, if you like variety at mealtime, you could serve it with some keto crackers—here’s a great recipe for those—or some keto buns, and here’s a great recipe for those!.

How to Store Leftover Cobb Salad

If you plan on having any leftovers, I would recommend not spreading the homemade ranch dressing on the entire salad when serving it. Only put it on your dish. This way, if you have leftovers, you won’t run the risk of having soggy salad the next day.

Store your homemade ranch dressing in a glass container with an airtight lid. You can safely store it in your fridge for up to one week.

Variations and suggestions

You can switch up this best Cobb salad recipe any way you like. Don’t like bacon? Don’t put it in. Not a chicken lover? Use turkey or tofu.

The sky is the limit with this chicken cobb salad.
