Find Caesar Salad Near You for Curbside Pickup & Delivery

The best thing about Caesar's salad is that you get a complete, satisfying meal in one bowl. The combination of fresh vegetables, proteins, carbs, and fats make this salad a nutritious dish.

What's magical about this savory meal is its versatility. You can have a different Caesar salad each time with a simple ingredient swap.

Hence, you can have Chicken Caesar salad, Salmon Caesar salad, or Shrimp Caesar salad. You can swap the lettuce for different greens, and with some little changes, you can have a vegetarian or vegan alternative to the most popular salad in the world.

Ave Caesar!

The Caesar Salad Dressing

The dressing is what makes the salad wholesome and combines the ingredients correctly. So, the Caesar salad dressing is kind of a big deal. As with the salad, the dressing has many variations, but the classic Caesar salad dressing contains two main ingredients:

  • Mashed anchovy fillets, or anchovy paste – for saltiness and umami taste
  • Egg yolks or mayonnaise – for creaminess

Additionally, local chefs whisk together fresh garlic, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, black pepper, olive oil, vegetable oil, and finely grated Parmesan. All together with the anchovies and the eggs (or the mayonnaise) is what makes the Caesar salad dressing. Furthermore, some restaurants offer Caesar salad dressing without anchovies for those who don't like the taste. The sauce's vegan alternative has tahini and hummus instead of the anchovy-yolk mix, soaked and blended cashews for the cheesy creaminess, and capers for brininess.

Caesar Salad Ingredients

Though there are many alternatives to this famous dish, the original recipe for the Caesar salad is consisted of:

  • Caesar Salad Dressing
  • Croutons
  • Lettuce, and
  • Parmesan.

The base of the salad is fresh Romaine Lettuce. The croutons, which basically are baked, and seasoned bread pieces, are added over the lettuce. All together is tossed with the dressing until the lettuce is evenly coated. The Parmesan is put on top, shaved, or shredded.

The Caesar Salad Origin Story

As with many legendary dishes, the origin of the Caesar salad is a bit murky. But the most probable origin story dates from 1924 in Tijuana, Mexico.

Who Invented Caesar Salad?


So, who invented the Caesar salad? And does this dish owe its name to the Roman general Julius Caesar? Surprisingly not. Some other Caesar is in question, and that’s the inventor of the salad, an Italian American named Cesare (Caesar) Cardini.

His family immigrated to the US from Italy after WWI. A few years later, they opened their first restaurant in Sacramento, then later moved the business to San Diego, and finally, in 1927, to escape the Prohibition, they settled in Tijuana. That’s when Caesar’s Restaurant was open.

As Cesare’s daughter, Rosa remembers, her father invented the salad on July 4th in 1924. The restaurant was packed, and there weren’t many ingredients left. So, Cesare decided to toss everything he had into a bowl: Romaine lettuce, garlic, croutons, Parmesan, olive oil, raw eggs, and Worcestershire sauce – and the Caesar salad was born.

Of course, there are some other stories regarding the inventor of this salad. Cesare’s brother Alex claimed he invented the salad and named it Aviator salad, but it was later renamed after his brother. Other claim Alex added the anchovies in the salad his brother Cesare had already invented.

Other stories give credit for the salad to an employee at the Caesar Restaurant named Livio Santini, who had the recipe from his mother.

Whichever story is true, a masterpiece was born. The salad became so popular that many people, including movie stars such as Clark Gable and Jean Harlow, traveled to the Restaurant in Tijuana just for this dish.

Back in the days, Cesare prepared the salad in front of the guests, making it a spectacle, just as acclaimed American chef Julia Child described as an early childhood memory in her cookbook “From Julia Child’s Kitchen.” The salad’s popularity was immense, so in a very short time, it spread among chefs in North America and all the way to Europe.

In the 1940s, Gourmet Magazine called the salad “the gastronomic highlight of the current moment”. By 1953 the International Society of Epicures in Paris called it “the greatest recipe to originate in the Americas in 50 years”.

Though the Cardinis are no longer the owners of Caesar Restaurant, the family that operates the spot today, the Plascencias preserve the place, and the favorite item on their menu is “one of the few pieces of cultural history that we have.”

But you don’t have to travel all the way to Tijuana for a delicious Caesar salad. You can get it delivered to your door, or you can get it with a curbside pickup from the local restaurants near you.

If you are in Philadelphia, you can try Randazzo’s Pizza signature Caesar salad with garlic knots. Those in Eagleville, PA, can choose from 4 variations of this salad in Kosmos Pizza: classic Caesar salad, Grilled Chicken Caesar salad, Crispy Chicken Finger Caesar salad, and Caesar salad with Sauteed Jumbo Shrimp. Both spots are in the Slice app.

However, the standard salad serving is mostly 3 cups.

Caesar Salad Variations


The best thing about the Caesar salad is that everyone can find its favorite variation by their own preferences. Some of them are:

  • Kale Caesar Salad - made with kale instead of Romaine lettuce (or a combination of both greens) for a meal packed with vitamin A, K, B6, and C, and minerals like potassium, copper, and manganese.
  • Chicken Caesar Salad - one of the most popular variations of the Caesar salad is the one with chicken meat pieces, mostly grilled or fried chicken breasts. Some restaurants even serve a crispy chicken alternative to the salad.
  • Grilled Caesar Salad - the smokey variation of the Caesar salad comes with grilled Romaine Lettuce for a charred texture and a crispy, barbeque flavor.
  • Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad – when using chicken, most restaurateurs use grilled chicken breasts. This alternative of the Caesar salad is one of the most satisfying and can be eaten as a complete, balanced meal.
  • Caesar Pasta Salad – add some boiled pasta to the bowl, and there you have the Caesar Pasta salad. The most popular pasta types for this salad are penne and rotini.
  • Salmon Caesar Salad – the protein from this type of Caesar salad comes from the grilled salmon.
  • Shrimp Caesar Salad – another seafood alternative for the classic Caesar salad with grilled shrimps, packed in a garlicky deliciousness.
