Hi Theres an old recipe called Salamgundy in several history of english cookery books which seem similar.

I'm from California in the US. The chopped salad originated at the "Brown Derby' restaurant in Beverly Hills in the 1950's. Although this is indeed a chopped salad and looks delish a "Cobb Salad" consists of: Chopped lettuce, chicken, bacon, egg, avocado,tomatoe and blue cheese crumbles. Presented in lines as shown for this salad. It was served tableside by the waiter and tossed as a presentation to the guest. Some of those waiters had quite a show! I had my first chopped salad there in 1975. The restaurant has been gone for a few years memories as a teenage young lady "Doing Lunch" will always be remembered.

Always a nice visual treat. I think this is what they call Cobb Salad in the US?

Wow, novel way to serve a salad that the guests really loved, substituted the radishes for cherry tomatoes though as I'd put radishes in the potato salad.
