The Cobb salad is an invention that defies its own name in the usage of the world “salad”. At DiBruno’s today I had a Cobb “salad” where the lettuce seemed to serve mostly as a bumper for the bleu cheese, turkey, and bacon. By my math it had about 1100 calories in it after dressing or about two big Macs. I’m fine with that. My dinner that evening consisted of a hot dog.
