Caesar Salad is a staple in the salad world. The crisp romaine lettuce, creamy garlic dressing and crunchy croutons make this dish a crowd pleaser. This is the perfect dish to take to work, school or a dinner party; add chicken or an egg on top to really impress!
Fun fact: many people assume this salad has ties to Julius Caesar, but it actually originated in 1924 in Tijuana, Mexico.
