ORLANDO, Fla. -- We've discovered a very common salad that looks nothing like you'd think.
"We see this thing pop up on Instagram all over the place," said Chef David Belliveau, World of Beer Culinary Director. "It's not your average salad."
The ingredients, though, are what you'd expect in a Cobb, with a few enhancements. For instance, the chicken bathes overnight in a white wheat beer brine.
Chef also adds some crunch on top by frying sliced tortillas made of both corn and flour.
The shape of the salad is why it's blowing up on social. Using a tricked-out PVC pipe, Chef packs each layer in there and creates a solid "stack" when removed.
