This salad is a LOW- Carb dream. Bacon, hard-boiled egg, lettuce, tomatoes, grilled chicken, avocado is a wonderful keto meal.
Cobb Salad is my favorite summer salad, in fact, it is my favorite salad all year round! I feel like I have been eating it my whole life. I don’t even have to think about what I am going to order when we dine at the Daily Grill, it is Cobb Salad and Iced Tea, always!
This salad is a LOW- Carb dream. Hard-Boiled eggs are also perfect with this salad, but my eggs didn’t peel well and looked awful for the pictures, so I omitted them. I love a creamy Blue Cheese dressing, but you can have any dressing you prefer, Vinaigrette, Caesar, Oil, and Vinegar, or just a squeeze of lemon.
What is the Origination of the Cobb Salad?
I guess I shouldn’t assume that you have had a Cobb Salad before. Hubs asked if there was corn in the salad? HMMMM, what? Oooooh, corn on the cobb? No, not the original Cobb Salad. The Cobb Salad originated at The Derby Restaurant in Hollywood California, on Hollywood Blvd. This salad was named after Robert Howard Cobb.
The Derby was a wonderful restaurant where the Who’s -who of celebrities would dine, such as Jimmy Durante, ahh-cha-cha-cha! His nose, or as he would call it, “schnaze”, was larger than most. There was a photo of his profile with him in one photo, and the extension of his “schnaze” in the photo next to his. I would stare at this photo drawing in awe, I thought it was so cool to have two pictures, hysterical!
What do you need to make a cobb salad?
When you make a Cobb Salad, use a Good Quality Blue Cheese such as Castello’s The Original Danish Blue Cheese. It is creamy and bold and one of the best Blue Cheese I have tasted. What you will need for this salad: Crispy Bacon, Ripe Avocado, Lettuce, Grilled Chicken, Blue Cheese, Hardboiled Eggs ( not pictured), Tomatoes.
