The Cobb salad is a main-dish garden salad that was invented in the 1930s at the Hollywood Brown Derby restaurant. It is named for the restaurant’s owner, Robert Howard Cobb. The story says that Cobb had not eaten until near midnight, so he mixed together whatever leftovers he found in the kitchen, along with some bacon, and tossed it with some French dressing, and that is how the Cobb salad was born.
