Cobb Salad
2nd June, 2017

I’ve been asked by friends why the Cobb Salad doesn’t contain any corn on the cob or cob nuts. Surely the salad is named after a main ingredient

It turns out that it’s named after a restaurant owner where it was first served. Anyway, the name has stuck and the salad is a legend.


  • 2 Baby Gem lettuces, pulled apart into individual leaves
  • 1 avocado, stoned and sliced
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 4 rashers cooked crispy bacon
  • 1 chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped into chunks
  • For the dressing
  • 75ml buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp chopped dill
  • ½ garlic clove, crushed


    In a small bowl, whisk the dressing ingredients together with some salt.

    Arrange the salad ingredients separately on a large plate and serve with the dressing separately
