Description:
The Cobb salad is a main-dish garden salad made from chopped salad greens (iceberg lettuce, watercress, endives, and Romaine lettuce), tomato, crisp bacon, boiled or roasted chicken breast, hard-boiled egg, avocado, chives, red-wine vinaigrette and Roquefort cheese.

The salad was invented in the 1930s at the Hollywood Brown Derby restaurant, where it became a signature dish. It is named for the restaurant's owner, Robert Howard Cobb.

Variations of the salad are served in restaurants worldwide.

There has also been discussion of a possible origination in the Midwest region, most notably Nebraska. In 1917 a similar recipe (though not containing red wine vinaigrette and with spinach as opposed to iceberg lettuce) was served as a main dish at a local country club outside of Lincoln.
