  • Summary

    Robert H. Cobb, owner of the Brown Derby restaurant in Hollywood, is said to have invented this salad in the 1930s as a late-night snack for himself. No wonder it has remained an American classic. With the crunch of the iceberg and onions, the soft richness of the avocado, the saltiness of the bacon, the sweetness of the tomato, and the bite of the blue cheese, this salad has it all! And it is beautiful to boot.

    Ingredients

    • 2 1/2 ounces smoked bacon, rind removed, cut into matchsticks (3/4 cup)
    • 1 head iceberg lettuce, chopped (4 cups)
    • 2 ripe heirloom tomatoes, cored, peeled, seeded, and chopped
    • 1 large ripe avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, and cubed
    • 4 ounces chilled blue cheese (preferably Roquefort), crumbled (1 cup)
    • 4 small spring onions or scallions, white part only, trimmed, peeled, and cut into thin rounds
    • Yogurt and Lemon Dressing
    • Coarse, freshly ground black pepper
