As a self-professed Foodie, I like studying the history of how certain recipes come to be.
The Cobb Salad started back in the 1930's in California when the owner of the Brown Derby restaurant, Bob Cobb and a friend were looking for a late-night snack. Bob looked in the fridge and pulled out left-overs. He chose a bed of mixed greens, tomatoes, cold cooked chicken, hard-boiled eggs, cheese and bacon. The salad was so good, that the next day the friend came in for lunch and requested the Cobb Salad. And so the salad was born. Since then more than 4 million Cobb salads have been sold at Brown Derby restaurants.
The beauty of this salad is how it is arranged in a bowl. Feel free to add whatever veggies you like--just keep it colorful! You can serve the salad with a vinaigrette, French or Ranch dressing.
