The beauty of this recipe is that it is very versatile and adjustable. You can play with the ingredients to fit for any taste and occasion. Also, if you are looking for more delicious summer dishes, try this amazing classic potato salad, or arugula salad.

Cobb salads are quite popular and festive looking meals that are full of proteins and vitamins. This version of it is personally my favourite one. The combination of shrimp and veggies, along with bacon and dressing, is just to die for. A true Cobb salad isn’t complete without bacon! I am a huge bacon-lover, and added extra bacon to it!

Also, this shrimp cobb salad recipe is full of protein and very easy to prepare. The shrimp takes only 5 minutes to cook, which makes this a truly unforgettable salad. You can assemble it any way you desire. Not only does this salad scream summer, but it is also super colourful and delicious!

 How to make Shrimp Cobb Salad?

Instructions

  1. Start by cooking the shrimp. I like to use a non-stick grill pan for this. However, you can easily fry it as well. Just mix the shrimp with olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper.
  2. Then, cook it quickly on the grill or skillet for about 4-5 minutes.
  3. Make the dressing by adding all the dressing ingredients together. You can use a blender or a fork to combine them, until the desired consistency.
  4. Lastly, assemble the salad. In a large bowl. Add lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and half of the croutons. Then, toss to combine. Top with shrimp, bacon, avocado, corn, and eggs. Garnish with the freshly made dressing on top. Add the remaining croutons.
  5. Serve fresh.

Recipe tips:

  • You can make this salad with other proteins. For example, feel free to swap the shrimp with chicken or turkey breast.
  • For a vegetarian version, skip the shrimp all together.
  • Also, you can use other vegetables on hand. You can add beans, bell peppers, shallots, mixed greens, cucumber, etc.

Storage

To store it, use an airtight container, and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
