Cobb Salad Recipe

Cobb_Salad

This Cobb salad recipe is true to its historic roots. Cobb salad was named after its creator Bob Cobb who owned the famous restaurant, The Brown Derby, in Hollywood California. Legend has it that one night he was looking for a midnight snack, pulled whatever he had in the fridge out, various greens, tomatoes, chicken, hard-boiled eggs, avocados, and cheese. He started chopping, topped it with bacon.

Some say it could have gone unnoticed if it wasn't for Sid Grauman, the man behind the intricate Chinese Theatre, who started to request the Cobb salad. The salad and its name went down in history.
