First of all, does anyone else have the same Cobb Salad thing going on that I do? Cobb Salad is actually not all that exotic…it’s lettuce and cheese and tomato and blue cheese and bacon and hard boiled eggs and sometimes some other stuff. There’s a restaurant I go to that does a lobster cobb salad that I sometimes actually dream about. But at the end of the day, it’s a pretty straightforward dish, so I’m not sure what pulls me to it like a magnet. (It could be the bacon, of course. Just a guess.)
At any rate, while I am a person that likes their Cobb Salad mixed together (it is usually served with all the ingredients separated out in nice organized lines on your plate), I do like the way this one starts out looking. You of course need a nice clear bowl to get the effect of the layers. The Southern husband knows that one of the ways to my heart is to buy me Pyrex bowls (yep, that just the kind of wild and crazy girl I am), and he recently got me some nice big ones. And they needed a proper breaking in.
And so…layered Cobb Salad! Dig in.
