Worldwide American Cobb Salad Recipe

If you are expecting company for lunch, this is a delightful salad to put together. When you know the likes and allergies of friends and families, it is easier to add ingredients together as one. If some guests are unable to enjoy certain foods, make the salad with the ingredients all enjoy and have a small Lazy Susan filled with the other items. Many people prefer to add their own dressing, so put the dressing in the center of the dish or in two small bowls.

There are so many interesting kinds of salads and this is one of them. Rumor has it that a bevy of leftovers at a prominent restaurant resulted in the creation of Cobb salad. Still others insist that salad recipes of this magnitude, methodically created item-by-item and put together artistically, reflect the vision of the chef. Regardless of the story, the important thing is that the salad is awe-inspiring and inspirational.

American Cobb Salads look best in lovely, clear glass or crystal dishes handed down from generation to generation. If you need one or two, look for an inexpensive glass or crystal bowl at your local second-hand store or at yard sales. Always use the freshest vegetables possible in any salad, a dish that often promotes better, healthy bones. Folic acid, one of the B vitamins, lessens the amino acid homocysteine in your body. That amino acid is associated with increased reports of blood clots and coronary disease. Eating healthy food is much easier and tastier than swallowing pills, so enjoy salads with asparagus, spinach, artichokes, and avocado. Sides to accompany salad include crispy potato or tortilla chips or soft rolls with butter.
