Servings: 4 as a main course or 6 as a side
This colorful composed salad is loosely based on the one created by Robert Howard Cobb in the 1930s at his Hollywood restaurant, the Brown Derby. Thinly sliced Asian pears and juicy pomegranate seeds add sweetness, and take the place of traditional hard-cooked egg and tomato. Save any leftover dressing for sandwiches, pasta, or salads.

This was a big hit among our friends tonight. I worried the mayonnaise dressing would just taste like mayonnaise but the additional ingredients made it very tasty. Of course having different components arrayed on a platter is not only attractive but enables folks to choose mostly what they like.
There was one peculiarity--the picture of the romaine didn't match the instructions to cut into 1/4" strips which seems really tiny. I just cut and ripped the lettuces into bite-sized pieces.
Love LOVE LOVE this salad. I always keep these ingredients on hand. I'm a fan of adding the Asian Pears and pomagranite seeds! The only thing different, I will make a raspberry vinegarette occasionally. Thank you !!
