History of the Caesar Salad

Ever wonder where some classic foods like the Caesar Salad originated?  The Caesar Salad has an interesting past but has nothing to do with Caesar.   There are egg and egg-free versions for the dressing.  I prefer egg-free due to food safety concerns.

From the Food Network:

“Contains Raw Eggs: The Food Network Kitchen suggest caution in consuming raw and lightly cooked eggs due to the slight risk of salmonella or other food-borne illness. To reduce this risk, we recommend you use only fresh, properly refrigerated, clean grade A or AA eggs with intact shells, and avoid contact between the yolks or whites and the shell. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use shell eggs that have been treated to destroy salmonella, by pasteurization or another approved method.”
