Dear SOS: I had lunch at the Restaurant at the Getty Center recently and had the most amazing Cobb salad that I have had in a long time. It was sort of a combination of a traditional Cobb and a Waldorf salad, and was beyond delicious. I would love to have the recipe for this fabulous salad.
Dear Pam: This salad takes some time to prepare but it makes a pretty terrific summer lunch. Make the individual components ahead, and you'll be able to put it together in a snap.
Total time: 50 minutes, plus 4 hours marinating
Note: Marinate, roast and dice the chicken, glaze the pecans, make the dressing, then assemble the salad.
