Take a note from the classics!
What's one of the great things about holiday meals? Leftovers! This recipe for a classic Cobb salad uses many ingredients you likely have on hand after Easter brunch or lunch.
A little background into the origins of the famous Cobb salad, made of leftovers: One late night in 1937, LA’s famous Brown Derby Restaurant owner Bob Cobb and Sid Grauman, the owner of Grauman’s Chinese Theater, were looking for a snack. Cobb took leftovers from the refrigerator – a little of this and that – and mixed them into a tasty salad loaded with goodies. The next day, Grauman, who had stopped by the restaurant, asked for a “Cobb salad.” The rest is history!
This classic Cobb salad recipe is perfect for Sunday dinner, after the Easter holiday brunch or lunch. You’ll use up some leftovers, and this salad won’t weigh you down after a day of eating delightful dishes and Easter goodies!
