I love salads just as much as the next person, but sometimes I want something a little heartier for lunch on days when I’m really hungry.

This cobb salad sandwich takes a bunch of things that I love about a cobb salad, (the hard-boiled egg, crispy bacon, roasted chicken, tons of veggies,) and puts it between two soft pieces of sliced white bread that have been deliciously slathered in an herbaceous creamy chive mayo.

It’s also a great way to use up leftover cooked chicken, or feel free to use your favorite sliced deli meat!

So, who’s ready for lunch?

Ingredients to make a Cobb Salad Sandwich.

Ingredients for cobb salad sandwich

For mayo:

  • Mayonnaise – Feel free to use your favorite homemade or store-bought variety.
  • Chives – Chives have a delicate onion flavor and a bright green color!

For salad sandwich:

  • Hard-boiled eggs – A classic protein in a cobb salad.
  • Cooked bacon – Crispy and salty, bacon is always a crowd pleaser. 
  • Roasted chicken – Feel free to use your favorite thick-sliced chicken from the deli or leftover chicken from your fridge!
  • Avocado – Creamy and savory avocado provides healthy fats that will keep us full longer!
  • Blue cheese crumbles – Blue cheese crumbles give us little bites of salty and sharp cheese throughout.
  • Veggies – Tomatoes and mixed greens make the perfect backdrop for all of our mix-ins.

How to make the perfect hard-boiled eggs

Ok, y’all know how much I love using my instant pot to make the perfect hard-boiled egg.

But, if you don’t have an Instant Pot, no worries! You can achieve perfection with just a pot and some water.

First, fill a pot with water, and add your eggs. 

Then, place it on the stove over medium-high heat.

When the water comes up to a boil, turn off the heat, slap on a lid, and take the pot off the hot burner.

Set a timer for 12 minutes.

While you’re waiting, take a bowl and fill it with cold water and ice.

When the timer is up, take the eggs out of the pot, and place them gently into the ice bath for 2 minutes. 

Voila! Perfect hard-boiled eggs, every time.

Bread options for cobb salad sandwich

I’ve used a tasty white bread here, but let your imagination go wild!

Ciabatta? Whole wheat? 12 Grain? Rosemary? Potato?

It’s up to you!

Go to the bakery section of your local grocery store and see what grabs your attention first. 

Trust me, they’d all be delicious here.

Storage and leftovers 

You could make this sandwich up to the night before, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and then again in aluminum foil and keep it in the fridge. But I wouldn’t make it any sooner than that. 

Unfortunately, the leftovers of this sandwich wouldn’t be great the next day. So enjoy it fresh when you can!
