Hollywood Brown Derby Cobb Salad~Recipe

Today I thought I would change it up a bit.  I know from what, my first post!  I love to find recipes used by restaurants on Disney property.  I thought I would try to make one of the most popular dishes on property, The Cobb Salad from the Hollywood Brown Derby in Hollywood Studios.  Below are the ingredients.


Salad Dressing

½ Head of ice berg lettuce                                                  ½ cup of Water

½ bunch of watercress                                                      ½ teaspoon sugar

1 small bunch of chicory                                                   1/ ¼ teaspoon salt

½ head of romain lettuce                                                 1 ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

2 medium tomatoes blanched and peeled                   1 clove of garlic chopped

1 ½ cup of cooked turkey breast, diced                        ½ cup of red wine vinegar

3 hard boiled eggs                                                              Juice of ½ lemon

½ C blue cheese                                                                ½ teaspoon black pepper

6 strips of bacon crumbled                                          ½ teaspoon English mustard

2 tablespoons of chopped chives                             ½ cup of extra virgin olive oil                                                                                                                                                                                                                     1 ½ cup of salad oil

These are all of the chopped vegetables.  The trick to this is to chop all of the lettuce finely.

This is the dressing.

I prepared the salad in the salad bowl in layers.  Topped with the bacon, turkey, and blue cheese.  These were laid in rows, and topped with the chopped chives.

Last, I blended all of the ingredients for the dressing, and streamed in the oils.  That was poured all over the top of the salad.

This is the final finished reproduction of the cobb salad at the Hollywood Brown Derby.  What do you think?  The salad was great.  Was it as good as the actual salad…no, but it was really close to the original.    Anyone who didn’t know any better would think it was a pretty darn good salad.  My daughter, Brooke, who eats nothing green, had 2 servings of this salad.  She also said that if I continue cooking like this she’s never going to leave.  That’s it I’m not cooking anymore, tee hee.

You can do this salad at home.  It’s extremely easy to put together.  I think the preparation time was 25 minutes.  That included cooking the turkey breast cutlets.  It would be a party favorite as well.

So, until next week, I’ll end by saying see ya real soon!
