Caesar salad is a classic salad that originated in Tijuana, Mexico, in the 1920s. The salad typically consists of romaine lettuce, croutons, Parmesan cheese, and a dressing made from egg yolks, garlic, Dijon mustard, olive oil, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce.
To make a Caesar salad, the romaine lettuce is typically chopped or torn into bite-sized pieces and placed in a large bowl. The croutons are added next, providing a crispy texture and a contrast to the fresh greens. Parmesan cheese is then grated over the top of the salad.
The dressing for the salad is typically made by whisking together egg yolks, garlic, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl. Olive oil is gradually added to the mixture, whisking constantly, until the dressing is thick and creamy.
The dressing is then drizzled over the top of the salad, and the salad is tossed until all the ingredients are evenly coated with the dressing. Some variations of the salad may include additional ingredients, such as anchovies or grilled chicken.
The end result is a refreshing and satisfying salad that is both crunchy and creamy, with a tangy and savory flavor profile. Caesar salad is a popular dish in many restaurants and is often served as a starter or as a side dish to a main course.
