Things I bet you didn’t know about Caesar’s Salad:
- Caesar Cardini invented the Caesar’s Salad. He invented the salad for his restaurant at a tourist location.
- Cardini invented the Caesar’s Salad in Mexico. Surprised, aren’t you? Yes, it wasn’t invented in Europe, as most people believed it to be.
- It was invented for American tourists, who were also friends of Cardini, during 1924. It is said that it was first served at July 4th.
- The first Caesar’s Salad was a mixture of whatever was in the hand’s reach of Cardini. It’s said that the first ingredients were: Worcestershire sauce, boiled eggs, croutons, garlic, olive oil and Parmesan cheese.
- It was during 1926, that Cardini’s brother, Alex, added the anchovies. It was during his visit in Tijuana.
- Alex’s version was first called “Aviator’s Salad”, but later on, it was then accepted as the standard recipe for Caesar’s Salad.
- Confusion for the origin of the salad is not unfounded though, because it became so popular in Europe during the 1950’s.
There you go, these are the things that you didn’t know about Caesar’s salad. Try it with tahini, and if you want, you can change the recipe just like Alex did. You might not know, you’ll be making your own history!
