Caesar Salad

CODE: 13


Price: $6.99

The salad's creation is generally attributed to restaurateur Caesar Cardini, an Italian immigrant who operated restaurants in Mexico and the United States.[1] Cardini was living in San Diego but also working in Tijuana where he avoided the restrictions of Prohibition.[2] His daughter Rosa (1928–2003) recounted that her father invented the dish when a Fourth of July 1924 rush depleted the kitchen's supplies. Cardini made do with what he had, adding the dramatic flair of the table-side tossing "by the chef."[3]
