Classic Caesar Salad

Here, you will know about Classic Caesar Salad. It is unlikely that the author of this salad, an American chef of Italian origin Caesar Cardini, could have imagined that his work would be so famous all over the world. The French looked into the water, arguing that three things can be made out of nothing: a scandal, a hat and a salad. It was “out of nothing” that the Caesar salad was born – nowadays such a popular dish. 

Legend has it that the chef ran out of almost all the products just when a large and noisy company of Hollywood filmmakers raided into his restaurant. The enterprising Italian collected all that remained, and … went down in the history of world culinary. And he really had a little left: lettuce, garlic croutons, olive oil, eggs, parmesan and Worcestershire sauce. Since modern restaurants do not experience a shortage of products, a lot of variants of Caesar salad have appeared. By the way, Caesar Cardini would hardly have taken offense. After all, the first who began to modify this salad was his brother.

Introduction

It is one of the unique and tastier recipes of all time. The majority of the people like it due to its healthy nutritional ingredients as well as great taste. This dish will surely provide you a refreshing and long-lasting satisfying experience. It is the original version of making Caesar salad because it includes eggs and lettuce.

The selection of lettuce is an important task. The dressing includes the use of romaine leaves that provides the best texture. Moreover, these leaves are of heart shape and have the characteristics of firm and crisp. The best advantage of them is that they will never wilt down and always give you a fresh taste. Even, when you will add creamy sauce, the leaves will also never wilt down. It is good to cut them into small sizes. Thus, they are easier to eat with any fork.

Many people prefer the smoky flavor of the salad. If you also want it, then grill romaine is the best choice. You can also use kale, Caesar. Besides the presence of lettuce, the tossing of creamy dressing makes it yummier. At last, toss with cheese and sauce that gives mouth-watering flavor. The crusty croutons are crunchy.

RECIPE TIP

Do not under any circumstances change Romano leaves for others. Their juiciness is half of the true taste of this salad. Essentially, the leaves are dried very thoroughly. Leaves with water will give the wrong taste, the water will dilute the sauce, it will become watery, the salad will drown in it. Bon appetit !!!
