Paleo Cobb Salad with Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette

This salad is very traditional, but for some reason, people seem to forget it exists. If you have some fresh herbs lying around, like oregano, basil, thyme, parsley, chives, throw them into the mix too.

Salad Ingredients

  • 2 romaine heads, chopped
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 5 hard boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 6 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped (or 2 handfuls of grape tomatoes)
  • 1/2 English cucumber (doesn’t need peeling or seeding, here’s what you’re looking for)


Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Ta-da. Very easy and full of flavor.

Vinaigrette Ingredients

  • 1 roasted red pepper
  • 2 T mayo
  • 2 glugs of olive oil
  • 1/2 t garlic powder
  • 2 T red wine vinegar
  • S & P


Combine all the ingredients into the smallest bowl of your food processor or a blender and blend until smooth.

    Just made this salad last night. My husband went back for seconds and said it was way better than any restaurant salad! I am really enjoying your website. Everything I have tried has been awesome so far!
