Caesar Salad Recipe,  There are many stories about the origin of Caesar Salad. The most likely is that it was invented by an Italian, Caesar Cardini, who owned a restaurant in Mexico in the 1920s. Simplicity is the key to its success. The classic dressing for Caesar Salad is made with raw egg yolks.
