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.
