Caesar Salad

Caesar Salad, easily one of the most popular salads on restaurant menus today.

You could call a Caesar salad Italian, after all, it was invented by restaurateur Caesar Cardini, an Italian immigrant.  Or, you might call it Mexican, since it made it’s debut in Tijuana, Mexico at one of Cardini’s restaurants.   Cardini’s daughter Rosa has said that her father invented the dish when a Fourth of July rush depleted the pantry at the restaurant.  Cardini made do with what he had and ended up with Caesar salad.  At the time, the romaine leaves were dressed whole  and plated, and meant to be eaten by picking them up by the stem and eating them with the fingers,  as opposed to cutting up the lettuce, as is  done today.
