We suggest boiling or steaming our live lobster before preparing this recipe. Allow at least 15 minutes for the lobster to cool before breaking it down and removing the meat for the salad.
Simple and Refreshing Lobster Salad Recipe
Mix together the olive oil and fresh lemon juice. Add a dash of salt and pepper; stir and set aside.

Arrange the lobster meat over the salad mixture.
Drizzle the oil and lemon juice dressing over the salad and lobster meat.

The best part about this recipe is that it’s incredibly adaptable. You can add just about any of your favorite salad toppings to create your salad, swap baby spinach for romaine lettuce or mixed greens, or combine the lobster meat with a small amount of mayonnaise and some diced celery for even more flavor and the right amount of crunch. You can also swap the oil and lemon dressing for a vinaigrette or a light Italian dressing with a bolder flavor.
Fun tip: This recipe also transforms beautifully into a sandwich on whole wheat bread or a wrap! Slice the avocado and tomato thinly instead of dicing them and layer them onto your sandwich or wrap with the spinach and lobster. Drizzle the lemon and oil mixture over the lobster meat, or swap it for a light spread of mayo.
