The Cobb salad is named after American restaurant owner Robert Howard Cobb. There are different stories whether the salad was invented by Cobb himself or by his chef, Paul J. Posti. According to the legend, Cobb mixed together leftovers he found in the kitchen on a late night and we all know what happened afterwards — the result was so great that the salad became an instant classic.
If you’re starting with raw chicken, fry it in the bacon fat, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Feel free to use different lettuces than just iceberg, including a spring mix, leafy greens, romaine, mesclun mix, and even kale.
You can swap the ranch dressing for your favorite low carb dressing or vinaigrette.
