Cheesecake Factory Vegan Cobb Salad served in a plate with dressing on the side

This salad from Cheesecake Factory is one of my favorite salads of all time.

It’s loaded with so many vegetables. The color and flavor and texture in this salad is out of this world.

Recipe modifications:

Add or leave off whatever vegetables you like/don’t like.

But I do encourage you to try golden beets! I don’t love beets. But golden beets have a much less dirty flavor to them.

Roasted sweet potatoes would be great in this salad too.

You can use store bought dressing instead of making your own.

I know it’s a vegan salad – but it’s so good topped with salmon or grilled chicken!

Can you make this ahead of time?

You can make the dressing a few days ahead of time.

For the salad, I would prep all the vegetables. But I wouldn’t dress the salad until you are ready to serve it!

What to serve with this Cheesecake Factory Vegan Cobb Salad:

This would make the best addition to your Easter table. Make some ham. With this asparagus. And hashbrown casserole. Finished with some carrot cake or Easter egg cupcakes for dessert. YUM.
