Los Angeles Confidential Magazine: Cobb Salad

LA lays claim to few original dishes - kimchi tacos, hamachi and jalapenos...and the Cobb Salad, that all-American melange of chopped veggies, meats and cheeses that has stuck around for well over 70 years at this point.

First invented at the Brown Derby, the Cobb Salad has become a culinary institution in its own right, though you can still find interesting variations all over LA. It's the original "have it your way" dish.
