A low FODMAP cobb salad with chicken, bacon, roquefort, egg, avocado and tomato

Low FODMAP cobb salad

A Cobb salad is a well-known salad in the United States and I thought it would be fun to make a low FODMAP version of it. So a low FODMAP Cobb salad.

A cobb salad usually consists of iceberg lettuce, tomato, bacon, turkey or chicken breast, boiled eggs, avocado, and blue cheese served with a homemade dressing.

The various ingredients are usually placed in neat rows on top of the lettuce and that is how the salad is served. That looks very nice!

A Cobb salad is a super filling salad that you can eat as a main meal. Wonderful for summer days.

The ingredients of the low FODMAP Cobb salad

I made my low FODMAP Cobb salad with the following ingredients:

  • Romaine lettuce
  • Fried chicken breast
  • Slices of fried bacon
  • Boiled eggs
  • 1/4 avocado: 1/8 avocado per person is low FODMAP. If you know that you can handle sorbitol well, you can use a little more avocado.
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Blue cheese, I used Roquefort

I made the dressing with olive oil, red wine vinegar, a little mustard, pepper, and salt.

These ingredients make a healthy protein-rich salad that also tastes delicious. Win-win! Continue reading for the recipe.
