If you live on the coast like me and have access to fresh lobster, this salad is a must! If you’re worried about cooking a live lobster, many seafood stores will steam it for you or buy frozen. Crab or shrimp would also make an excellent substitution in this Cobb Salad. More lobster recipes you must have all summer, a cold Lobster Roll and Lobster Roll Pasta Salad.

I recently had dinner with my girlfriends at a local waterfront seasonal restaurant that serves up lots of seafood, real palm trees (mind you I live in NY) and even sand to make you feel like you’re away somewhere on a tropical island. We shared a few dishes including a lobster cobb salad which was good but a bit heavy on the dressing, and also included blue cheese. I thought the idea was great so I recreated it, using fresh corn in place of the blue cheese and paired it with a delicious Dijon vinaigrette. The results, outstanding! This is a salad I will be making again this summer for entertaining, it’s huge (1 whole lobster per person), delicious and very filling. You can easily double it and assemble in a large bowl rather than individual plates.

    I have made this several times. As I live alone, i appreciate recipes I can easily scale down. This is a “GoTo” when lobster tails are on special.

  3. Is the sodium listed per serving? Seems high – can’t figure out where the high sodium is coming from, other than the bacon & the added salt (though one could leave that out) … ? 

  4. Wowza. This was an amazing salad. The flavors worked so well together.  The dressing is just the pair for the salad and I love the bite of red onion with red wine vinegar. Thanks for the delicious recipe!

  5. Question, living in rural Colorado, Lobster just isn’t an option. Would it be ok to use the imitation you see in the meat dept? I know… personally I kinda like it! lol.

  6. Wow! This was so good. I substituted the lobster for crab meat (I purchased from Whole Foods). This was soooooo good!!!! The dressing was easy to make and perfect with the salad. The salad looked so pretty and had amazing flavor. Thanks Gina!
