Cobb Salad with Creamy Bleu Cheese Dressing
Contributed by: NAPSA
A New Twist On An Old Favorite
(NAPSA) - Blue cheese and bacon can add flavor to any meal. That's why more people are using these flavors in everything from appetizers to main dishes to salads. One classic salad, Cobb Salad, uses bacon and blue cheese to create its trademark flavor.
This delightful meal or snack was invented in 1937 when Bob Cobb, owner of the famous Brown Derby in Hollywood, was raiding the restaurant's refrigerator for a late-night snack. The signature flavors of bacon and blue cheese have remained ever since.
Now, one company, Litehouse Foods, has combined the two flavors in one salad dressing for added convenience. Starting with the company's own handcrafted blue cheese, this quality product is made in small batches in its factory in Sandpoint, Idaho.
You can try this new take on a traditional salad favorite.
