This Fall Cobb Salad is an autumn-themed version of a classic cobb that's tossed in a simple, 4-ingredient Honey Mustard Dressing. This salad is fall in a bowl and it's a tasty, festive way to celebrate the season!


  • 6 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 4 hard boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1 large honeycrisp apple
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 ½ cups frozen butternut squash*
  • ½ cup roughly chopped pecans
  • ¼ cup blue cheese crumbles

Honey mustard dressing:

  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons dijon
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper


  1. Mix the dressing: in a small bowl, stir together the dressing ingredients. Stir or whisk until emulsified (fully mixed & thickened).
  2. Make the salad: add all of the salad ingredients to a large bowl. If using frozen butternut squash, heat it (using the microwave or stovetop) according to the package’s instructions and then let it cool before adding it to the salad.
  3. Add dressing: drizzle as much of the dressing as preferred on top and toss to mix.
  4. Serve: enjoy! Serve immediately.


*You can also use fresh butternut squash (instead of frozen) and roast it in the oven before adding it to your salad.
