Cobb Salad Sandwich

Cobb salad is one of my favorite meals. I think it’s the bacon, blue cheese and avocado that really get me. I like all the other salad stuff involved but it is this trinity that elevates the dish to sublime. If you want something more substantial than a salad, or simply like sandwiches as I do, try layering the components onto a freshly baked and toasted kaiser roll. A little mayo is all that’s needed for dressing.

Cobb Salad Sandwich

Split and lightly toast a fresh roll. Kaiser is a fav around here, ciabatta is good too.

Spread both halves with a little mayo.

Then add layers of:

lettuce (bib is my first choice)

sliced chicken or turkey


avocado slices

crisp bacon

crumbled blue cheese

Several grinds of black pepper

A true Cobb salad includes hard boiled eggs so add a few slices if you can fit them onto the stack.

In truth, all the ingredients are essential here. The tomatoes and lettuce are just as important as the bacon and blue cheese. As in so many classic dishes it is the combination of flavors and textures that make it special. Hope you give this one a try.

    oh my this sounds delicious..i am going to jot down the items I need from the store so I can make this soon!

    I didn’t think I liked Cobb Salad. Probably it’s the mayo. Without that this sandwich sounds fabulous! It looks even better.

    Cathy, you never cease to amaze me with your mouthwatering recipes.
    (And PHOTOS!!!)

    On my trip to town today I’m picking up the missing ingredients and it will be on the menu as soon as the avocado ripens. :)

    Thank you for all the inspiration you provide. xo~m.

    P.S. I don’t know WHY in the world I even sketch out a menu for the week, it always gets derailed after I visit your blog. I should come here FIRST! ((hugs))

    I can’t wait to give this one a try!! I love, love, love kaiser rolls for sandwiches (childhood thing – very comfort-food-like for me). Never occurred to me to put one of my favorite salads inside bread! Genius!!

    Oh this sounds wonderful! Bet it would be amazing with some sweet potato fries too! More items added to my grocery list! ♥

    I love cobb salad but do you think I would have ever thought to make a sandwich out of the ingredients? No! What a terrific idea.

  7. Acorn Cottage says

    That looks so fresh and delicious. Why is it when I’m shopping for groceries I have sandwich ingredients like that pop into my head? I can’t do anything with making a list, and if I make a list at work, I have to staple it around my purse strap so I don’t forget it! But for one of your recipes Cathy, I will do it!!!

    Hi Cathy,
    That looks scrumptious! I didn’t know what a cobb sandwich was so I had to read your entry and looks like I will be trying it (you always have delicious and awesome recipes). My only dilemma is trying to find the right avocado – sometimes they are too soft or too hard. Thanks for sharing another wonderful recipe!

  10. Paula says

    LOVE it! Love it, love it, love it! Oh, this is just an outstanding sandwich, Cathy! I totally agree about the trinity. Truly, this sammie just shouts “Delicious!” YUM!
