The infamous big salad

Big salad

I love a big salad. The only thing I love more than eating a big salad is making one. While the big salad was brought to mainstream tv humour by the show Seinfeld, it has always been one of those meal items that make you feel good about gorging an inordinate amount of food into your mouth in one sitting.

If the big salad was an empire, it’s king would be Robert Cobb, creator of the Cobb salad, encompassing chicken, bacon, avocado, blue cheese crumbles, tomato, hard cooked egg, chive, watercress, romaine and iceberg lettuces. While I opt for ‘fake’ chicken and bacon to suit my veggie needs, part of the fun of making a cobb is mixing up the ingredients a little bit to make it something that suits your personal taste. But in the meantime, enjoy this ‘recipe‘ and salad history lesson by Kate in the Kitchen, who created the yummy salad above. Hopefully if you have a big Cobb this weekend, it will make you think of spring which is just around the corner!

  2. Mmmmmmmm, mouthwatering! My sister and I are big “dinner salad” junkies. Love a chunky salad, very soul satisfying. In fact, I think I am going to have one for lunch.
