Cobb Salad

Cobb Salad is an American phenomenon, reported to be invented in the 1930s at the famous Brown Derby restaurant in Hollywood, owned by one Robert Howard Cobb.  Regardless of its provenance, this fresh, healthy salad deserves to make it onto all European menus, especially in the summer when our lettuce, tomatoes and spring onions are all their freshest.  You can remember what to put in it by thinking EAT COBB: Eggs, Avocado, Tomatoes, Chicken, Onions, Bacon, Blue cheese.  Choose the lettuce of your choice (Cos, Romaine, Little Gem), add these ingredients and top with homemade Ranch dressing (our recommendation) and you will be hooked.
