No-Lettuce Lobster Cobb Salad with Zucchini Noodles

You’ve seen me do it before: ditch the lettuce.

One way to incorporate spiralized veggies into your diet is by treating them like lettuce, which, is obviously way more exciting.

Don’t get me wrong, I love a big, fluffy salad, but I mean, wouldn’t you rather eat pasta over lettuce?

No-Lettuce Lobster Cobb Salad with Zucchini Noodles

When I first starting making salads, I only used romaine lettuce. I feel like romaine lettuce is the gateway into the fabulous worlds of salads. Romaine lettuce is in taco salads at Chipotle, the base of the most popular Caesar salad and iceberg lettuce it’s typically the main option at salad bars.

Soon after my love for building giant salads began, I read somewhere about the nutritional value of romaine lettuce versus other, greener lettuces. Basically, there isn’t quite as big of a nutritional bang for your bank.

A wise person once told me – the darker the green, the more nutritionally dense. Think kale and spinach – there’s a reason Popeye loved spinach so much!

I try to eat kale, spinach, arugula and other darker lettuces when I’m making salads, unless the salad flavors all for a romaine (ie a chopped salad works best with romaine lettuce because the lettuce is stiffer.)

Anywho, now, after Inspiralized, I ditch the lettuce and use spiralized veggies instead – like here, with this lobster Cobb salad!

Using zucchini noodles instead of lettuce makes the meal less salad-y, more fun to eat and packs the nutritional benefits of zucchinis (ie  dietary fiber and lots of folates.)

One more note – don’t be intimidated by the lobster. You can grab pre-cooked lobster at most grocery stores or, as you’ll see in the recipe instructions, it’s easy to cook lobster! If you’re still afraid, make this a regular Cobb salad, no lobster. Or, use some chopped chicken or if you want to stick with the seafood vibe, top it with some jumbo lump crab meat.

Regardless of what type of Cobb you turn this dish into, it won’t disappoint.

No more soggy salads, make yours #inspiralized.

No-Lettuce Lobster Cobb Salad with Zucchini Noodles

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time30 mins
Total Time45 mins
Servings: 2


  • 2 raw lobster tails about 10oz each (you could also buy this pre-cooked and skip the first step in this recipe, FYI)
  • 2 strips of turkey bacon I like Applegate!
  • 1 large zucchini
  • 1 ear of corn shucked
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 avocado pitted and peeled
  • 1 boiled egg
  • freshly cracked pepper to garnish
  • For the dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon country dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Fill a pot halfway with water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add in the lobster tails and cook for 8 minutes. Drain into a colander and remove the meat from the tails, chop, and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, on another burner, place a large skillet over medium-high heat and coat with cooking spray. Once heated, add in the bacon and cook until crispy, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate and set aside.
  • While the lobster and bacon cook, peel and spiralize the zucchinis with Blade D. Trim the noodles and set aside, dividing into two bowls (these will be what you eat the salad from, so pick a wide pasta or salad bowl.)
  • Once the lobster is done, refill the same pot halfway with water and place the corn and a pinch of salt. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Once boiling, cook for 2-3 minutes or until the corn is fork-tender. Remove, drain into a colander and once cool enough to handle, shave the kernels off the cob and set aside.
  • While the corn cooks, prepare the rest: quarter the cherry tomatoes, crumble the cooked bacon, slice (or dice) the avocado, and quarter the boiled egg. Set everything aside.
  • Place all of the ingredients for the dressing into a food processor and pulse until creamy. Taste and adjust if necessary. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Now, it’s time to assemble your salads! Top the zucchini noodle bowls evenly with cherry tomatoes, bacon, corn, avocado, boiled egg and lobster. Drizzle the bowls with the dressing and serve with freshly cracked pepper.

I have the inspiralizer. How do I know what is blade D. They are not marked or am I missing something. thanks.
Anonymous says:
I had same problem. There is an arrow on side of machine; turn whatever blade you want on that arrow!
nancy arnett says:
I have no arrow on side of machine. One blade says 3MM and one says 6MM and one says nothing so when I do your recipes you usually say blade D and I don't have a clue which one you are referring to. Thanks.
nancy arnett says:
Just figured it out. I bought one from Amazon and it is not the real one.

what’s your favorite easy weeknight taco combo? 🌮 #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
