que sera salad

McGraw-Hill Executive Dining / New York City
If a salad has glorious hunks of slab bacon, fine slices of a hard-boiled egg, chopped ham, crumbled Roquefort cheese and it's dripping with dressing, can it still be considered a salad? According to Robert H. Cobb - when he scavenged the fridge late at night in 1937 - that is exactly what it is. The tasty creation happened to catch on with the Hollywood scene at the time, and I can see why - even if itn't all that good for you.
