The Caesar Salad

The Caesar Salad.  What a wonderful dish to begin a meal.  Where did it come from?  Let me just say this…

Chef Caesar Cardini is credited for this famous salad.  In 1924, he allegedly constructed it in Tijuana, Mexico, on Fourth of July weekend when he was running low on food.  He was lucky enough to find good basic ingredients in his kitchen—lettuce, garlic-flavored olive oil, lemons, Parmesan, Worcestershire sauce and eggs—which he tossed together to create the dish.
