Michigan 37 Caesar Salad Dressing is a
salad of romaine lettuce and croutons dressed with parmesan cheese,
lemon juice, olive oil, egg, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and black
The salad's creation
is generally attributed to restaurateur Caesar Cardini, an Italian
immigrant who operated restaurants in Mexico and the United States.
Cardini was living in San Diego but he was also working in Tijuana
where he avoided the restrictions of Prohibition. His daughter Rosa
(1928–2003) recounted that her father invented the dish when a
Fourth of July 1924 rush depleted the kitchen's supplies. Cardini
made do with what he had, adding the dramatic flair of the
table-side tossing "by the chef. A number of Cardini's staff have
said that they invented the dish.
Julia Child said that she had eaten a Caesar salad at Cardini's
restaurant when she was a child in the 1920s. The first documented
Caesar salad dates back to 1946, when the newspaper columnist
Dorothy Kilgallen wrote about it.
