Caesar Salad is one of the famous and popular Italian appetizers. It is not named because of a Roman empire, but for Cesare Cardini, an Italian chef who moved to California because of WWI. Recently, it has become popular in Iran too. It is mainly made of lettuce and croutons. The best dressing is with lemon juice (or lime juice), egg, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, anchovies, and garlic. Balsamic Vinegarette dressing goes well with this salad too.
