A Cobb Salad is salad that is basically loaded with all the goodies, like chicken, tomatoes, eggs, lettuce, bacon, cheese, and just about anything else you want!
They say that the Cobb Salad came to be somewhere in California in 1937 by the man named Bob Cobb. Who happened to be rummaging through the Brown Derby Restaurant and pulling out various ingredients, including lettuce, hard-boiled eggs, cheese, tomatoes, chives, and avocado.
Smelling the bacon being cooked nearby, he grabbed a few slices to add to his dish. After a few bites, he shared his outcome with a his friend Sid Grauman. Being so impressed that he nicknamed the salad "Cobb Salad" and hense the classic was born!
Imagine having a salad named after you! It's our family favorite and a favorite of so many Americans today! But nobody is a bigger fan than my husband! Who happens to order a Cobb Salad pretty much every time we go to Chick-fil-a.
