The caesar salad is not Italian like many people think. Yes, it was created by an Italian immigrant in the 1920’s; however, It was created as his restaurant in Tijuana, Mexico. That makes it more Cesar than Caesar. No matter, this is still a delicious recipe. Make it once, then play around with it and make it your own version of this real Caesar or is that Cesar salad.
