What Makes a Cobb Salad a Cobb Salad?

Have you ever wondered exactly where a Cobb Salad got its name? If you hadn’t before, we bet you’re thinking about it right now. So, we’re going to explore the origins of this popular salad and put this mystery to bed, once and for all. 

Unlike many people think, the term Cobb salad has nothing to do with corn and everything to do with Bob Cobb, the founder of the Brown Derby restaurant. Like most legends, this one starts with a hungry man and ends with history being made. As the story goes, Bob and a friend were rummaging through his restaurant one night, looking for food. He grabbed a head of lettuce and some other greens, avocados, tomatoes, a hard-boiled egg, chives, cheese, some chicken, and bacon.

Chopping it up and topping it off with French dressing, history was made. People started asking for the “Cobb salad” and before you know it, it was a thing. Nowadays, this is considered a classic salad that’s offered at restaurants around the world. People have taken some liberties with the ingredients, but no matter where you order it, you can count on having a delicious salad.

Of course, we have our own version as well, if you’re now eager to give this classic a try!
