National Caesar Salad Day

National Caesar Salad Day

Caesar Salad is a delicious Italian salad that anyone who has had traditional Italian food or visited an Italian restaurant will know. This salad is made up of romaine lettuce, croutons, and a delicious mixture of parmesan cheese and egg. It also includes Worcestershire sauce and lemon juice. In some cases, anchovies are added.

National Caesar Salad Day was created to celebrate this tasty combination of leaves and seasonings.

Caesar Salad’s first fact is that it wasn’t named after the detested leader of Rome. It is not named after him, at least not directly. Caesar Cardini, an Italian immigrant, is the one who created the salad. He was able to get into the restaurant business in Mexico and the USA in the early 20th centuries.

The Caesar Salad, like many great culinary inventions of the past, was not created by a genius or with a plan. It was a result of desperation. There was once a bit of an uproar at Caesar Cardini’s Tijuana restaurant.

Cardini couldn’t afford enough food because it was the Fourth of July. The clever chef was quick to get to work, throwing everything he could into a bowl to keep customers happy.

What did you get? The result?

These American guests were so fondly enthralled by the food that they brought it back to California. It eventually found its way to New York City, where it was enjoyed by many.

The history of Caesar Salad is like any other food. It has been through many changes. Anchovies weren’t included in the original Caesar Salad, but this is still a common practice today. Some restaurants may offer anchovies as an addition to the salad. The Worcestershire sauce is also available as an addition to the natural flavor of the anchovy.

Cardini wouldn’t be happy with the frequent use of anchovies, just as he was opposed to anchovies directly in his salad. That’s not all that has happened over the years! There are many variations of this salad, including Steak Caesar Salad and Chicken Caesar Salad. These have all graced the menus at many restaurants around the globe.

This is the best way to celebrate! Make sure you eat a classic Caesar Salad in its original style. This is correct, the majority of Caesar Salad has been wrong for years!

This delicious salad should be eaten with whole romaine lettuces. It is actually a good idea to eat the salad by removing the stems and using your fingers to eat them. Cardini didn’t intend for this salad to be eaten with a fork.

Even if you don’t eat it as finger food, a delicious salad is a great way to celebrate the occasion.

Simply combine romaine lettuce with a little parmesan or shaved romano cheese, and some crunchy croutons in a bowl. For fun, add some bottled dressing to the mixture. This is a delicious and healthy treat.
