The owner of the Brown Derby restaurant, Robert Cobb invented this salad when a friend dropped in one night and asked if Robert had anything to eat. Mr. Cobb went to the refrigerator and used what was available to make the now famous deconstructed salad. You don't have to hold fast to this recipe, Mr. Cobb would be fine if you made any substitutions you'd like. - Jughandle
