Ordering Cobb Salads In Restaurants

My husband loves Cobb salads, and I was noticing he has been ordering them a lot lately when we eat out.  After a few bites of one of his salads, I did not see why he liked Cobb salads so much.  The Cobb salad tasted as I had always thought, boring.  I told my husband, Jerry, I was going to make him a Cobb Salad that would beat the taste of all the salads from his favorite restaurants.  Jerry and my son, Casey, agreed that this Cobb salad was the best they had ever had, which is why I called it the Best Cobb Salad.
