COBB SALAD TRIVIA

The owner of the Brown Derby restaurant in Hollywood, Robert Cobb,  created the Cobb salad in 1936.

According to Walter Scharfe, later president of the Brown Derby Restaurants, ".....its origin was quite by accident. One evening the original owner, Robert H. Cobb, went to the icebox and found an avocado, which he chopped with lettuce, celery, tomatoes, and strips of bacon. Later he embellished it with breast of chicken, chives, hard-boiled egg, watercress, and a wedge of Roquefort cheese for dressing, and the salad was on its way to earning an international reputation."

The Cobb salad and the Caesar salad were the first modern 'main course' salads in the U.S.  Up until that time (the 1920s and 1930s) most salads were side dishes composed of greens with a simple dressing of salt and vinegar and oil.
