This delicious salad was supposedly named in 1937 for Bob Cobb, the owner of the Brown Derby restaurant in Hollywood. As the story goes, Cobb was ravenous one night and threw together this salad, which a friend loved and named for him. I especially like it with Balsamic Vinaigrette, but you can also try it with Creamy Black Pepper Dressing or Lemon Poppyseed Dressing.
Use pancetta instead of bacon. Add fresh basil or mint leaves to the mixed greens. Replace the blue cheese with feta.
This was fantastic! I made it for a ladies dinner and offered both the creamy peppercorn as well as the balsamic dressing. It was devoured!
This is the best Cobb salad recipe I have ever found. I have made it for my family at least four times a year ever since it first appeared in a 2002 issue. The balsamic vinaigrette is the best, with the creamy black pepper dressing a close second, depending on what mood you're in. I'm not a fan of the lemon peppercorn dressing.
