Shrimp Cobb Salad Board Recipe

An epic salad board hits all the right notes for being fresh, healthy, and perfect for summer hosting.

A Cobb salad isn’t complete without bacon and avocado, in my humble opinion, but take it a step further and add jammy eggs, black ollives, and red onion.

Why I love this board

  • This salad is so fresh and lovely, especially for any party.
  • We love to serve it with both Thousand Island dressing and blue cheese dressing.
  • Perfect for Easter, Mother’s Day, and quite stunning for a bridal or baby shower.

Why serve a salad board?

Salad boards are casual and fun, with all ingredients on one big board. Sort of like a “build your own salad bar.” You can prep the ingredients the day before, and assemble right before the guests come! Easy!

This original board is no longer available, and it was not food safe. [We made it food safe with oil, etc.] The board in this post is 24 inches. We came out with our own line of boards, 26 inches being the largest. Our BIG BOARDS are all food safe, with a raised edge, and made in the USA. Here it is with our Fall Cobb Salad Board recipe – delish!

How do you make a Shrimp Cobb Salad board?

  1. On a large plate, place the chilled, cooked shrimp. Arrange soft boiled eggs (cut in half) aroun the shrimp. Place the plate in the center of a prepared board.
  2. In 6 small bowls, fill with cooked bacon, olives, avocado chunks, tomatoes, dressing, and cheese. Arrange the bowls around the shrimp plate.
  3. Around the outside of the board, lay down the lettuce leaves (optional to chop).
  4. Fill in open areas with remaining chopped veggies and lemon slices. Don’t forget the tongs and small utensils. Serve!

What dressing do you serve with a Cobb?

Everyone tosses their own salad in their bowl, with your favorite dressing. We love our BEST Thousand Island Dressing (make ahead and chill in the fridge). Or, maybe you’ve tried my Southern Cobb Salad with Sweet Onion Dressing (the dressing is soooo good!)

You may want something light and fresh, so feel free to make your own vinaigrette. You want flavors that will complement the other ingredients.

Also feel free to swap out the shrimp for diced chicken or ham, and trying crumbled feta instead of Roguefort cheese.

How do you serve a cobb salad board?

Eating outside is easy when dinner is on one board. For us, we carry it down to our bottom deck with a stack of dishes, napkins, and forks. Now if all salads were like this, I’d have no problem eating one of these every single day! :)

For that final touch of WOW – make our perfect “jammy” soft-boiled eggs to add to the Cobb salad board.

Set out plates and forks, grab a bottle or 2 of wine, and maybe some hot garlic bread – and dig in!
