The Cobb salad is said to have originated at the Brown Derby restaurant in Los Angeles way back in the ?30s. The poster child for composed salads (where the ingredients are decoratively arranged rather than tossed), the Cobb is beautiful when the ingredients are presented in rows. But don?t feel pressured to do so; it tastes just as good when served tossed together. Game plan: If tomatoes are not in their prime and you?re dying to make this salad, toss the chopped tomatoes with a pinch of salt and set in a fine mesh strainer over a bowl for at least 10 minutes to boost their flavor.
