Caesar Salad is one of the most coveted salads in the world. Next to a delicious Cobb salad, Caesar salad is one of the only salads that can evoke a feeling of comfort when eaten.
Most people assume Julius Caesar was the inventor of the beloved Caesar salad. However, the originator of Caesar salad is Caesar Cardini. Cardini was born in Northern Italy but migrated to the US in 1910. He opened two restaurants in Sacramento and Sandiego, then relocated to Tijuana, Mexico, due to prohibition in the 1920s. Four years later, the Caesar salad was born on the 4th of July 1924. Cardini was running out of ingredients as his restaurant was filled with customers, so he came up with the idea to create a meal using romaine lettuce, Parmesan cheese, raw egg yolks, and other leftovers such as chicken, and it was a hit. Nearly a hundred years later, this salad is still a hit. You can get in on the action by making this delicious, filling, keto-friendly version of the great Caesar salad.
