Individual Cobb Salads

According to the legend, Cobb salad was invented in the 1930s at the famed Brown Derby restaurant in Los Angeles. Our take on the ultimate Hollywood Golden Age salad—a rich combination of chopped lettuce, tomato, avocado, (soy) bacon, blue cheese, and eggs—needs just a little olive oil and lemon juice for dressing.
