One of the best things about living in New England is being near the scenic coast and lots of fresh seafood. One dish that always reminds me of the beautiful Nantucket Island is this delicious Nantucket Cobb salad with fresh lobster meat. This Keto-friendly salad is packed with greens and topped with tomatoes, boiled eggs, bacon, cucumber, red onions with lobster and cranberries for that New England twist.

A salad is not complete without a dressing and I love the new Newman’s Own Avocado Oil & Extra Virgin Olive Oil Greek Salad Dressing for this recipe. It is flavorful and complements this Nantucket Cobb salad so well. I am so glad to have found this salad dressing especially because it is not filled with sugar compared to most store-bought dressings. It’s like winning the salad dressing jackpot if you are somebody that needs the convenience of a store-bought dressing without sacrificing quality and taste.

If you are not a big fan of Greek dressing, the New Newman’s Own Avocado Oil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil dressings come in Ranch and Caesar flavors as well. The Ranch dressing also works well with this salad. The new Newman’s Own dressings are dairy-free, *sugar-free, gluten-free, and are also soy and canola free which can be hard to find. For those on Keto and Paleo diets, you will be happy to know the dressings are Keto and Paleo Certified. You can find these dressings at select retailers in the New England region including Hannaford Supermarket, Stop & Shop, Big Y World Class Market, Shaws and more.

How to make a Nantucket Cobb Salad

Nantucket Cobb salad Recipe ingredients

Making salad is very easy- anyone can do it. Here are some helpful tips when making this Nantucket Cobb Salad (also applies to other salads with a mix of cooked and uncooked ingredients):

  1. Prepare the cooked ingredients first. You want to start with cooking the bacon and eggs first before assembling the salad. Cook the bacon in the oven under the broil setting for about 8-10 minutes until it is slightly crispy. While the bacon is cooking boil the eggs for at least 10 minutes to get hard boiled eggs. If you prefer your eggs soft boiled with a gooey center, boil the water first, add the eggs and cook for 4 minutes and then turn off the heat and leave the eggs in the hot water for another 3 minutes
  2. Cool the cooked ingredients. Make sure to remove eggs from the pot and allow to cool before cutting. If you are making soft boiled eggs, make sure to add the eggs in a bowl with ice cold water to stop the cooking process. Drain excess fat from the bacon and allow to cool. I use pre-cooked lobster meat from the store but if you are cooking your lobster make sure you keep it cool in the refrigerator until ready to serve. 
  3. Prepare veggies and assemble ingredients. Wash and dry the lettuce and watercress before using. Cut the boiled eggs into quarters and the bacon into small pieces. Layer the greens first in a large salad bowl and top with the rest of the salad ingredients.
