Caesar Salad Recipe

Caesar-Salad-1

There are several different stories on how Caesar salad got its name. Most famous is that the salad is named after its founder, Caesar Cardini. After a mad rush at his restaurant, he had to make due with what was left, and hence Caesar salad was born. In 1948 the Cardini family trademarked the original recipe. Curiously, the original recipe never included anchovies.

Now served at restaurants nationwide topped with grilled chicken, steak or shrimp we've all welcomed Mr. Cardini's creation to our table. This Caesar salad recipe would have received his stamp of approval.
