Cobb Salad

Does anything look familiar? It’s Bambi 🙂

Before the movie Julia & Julia, Cobb salads were unheard of…in my little world. There is a scene when Julie (Amy Adams) meets with her friends for lunch at a fancy fancy restaurant. All of them ordered Cobb salads, each giving a special request to the waiter so systematically.

“Cobb salad, no bleu cheese.”
“Cobb salad, no beets.”
“Cobb salad, no bacon.”
“Cobb salad, no eggs.”

 If you love food, cooking and Julia Child you must watch Julie & Julia!

Husband: “What is it that you really like to do?”
Julia: “Eat.”
Husband: “And you are so good at it! Look at you!”
Julia: “I am good at it, I am growing right in front of you!”

 2 of my favorite quotes from Julia Child are:
“Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.”
“You’ll never know everything about anything, especially something you love.”

Cobb salads are so fun to make and can be served individually or as a big dish. They also make easy elegant presentations.  My cobb salad consisted of double layers, chopped tomatoes and cucumbers on the first, then eggs, raisins, more tomatoes and cucumbers on the top. There is no real recipe for cobb salad because anything and everything can be added depending on your taste. It is really just a salad with a fancy presentation.
