Foodservice Recipe: Cobb Salad

The Cobb salad is said to have originated at the Brown Derby restaurant in Los Angeles way back in the 1930s. It is poster child for composed salads, where the ingredients are decoratively arranged rather than tossed, the Cobb is beautiful when the ingredients are presented in rows.
