Cobb Salad Recipes


These Cobb salad recipes can be served as lunch or dinner. They also work well for bringing to a dinner party or potluck. You can change up your recipe how you like it also by adding something different or taking something out you don't like.

As the history of Cobb salad goes it is said to have been created by the Brown Derby Restaurant in Hollywood. While a chef was looking for a midnight snack he threw  a little of this and that together until voila a Cobb salad was born.
