10 restaurants to celebrate National Caesar Salad DayThursday , July 2nd , 2015
The food holiday celebrates the day in 1924 when Italian immigrant Caesar Cardini originated the salad that combines crispy romaine lettuce with croutons, Parmesan cheese, lemon, lardoons and a creamy dressing.
As the story goes, Cardini — a restaurateur — ran out of regular salad to feed his guests. To make his customers happy, he threw together some random ingredients and prepared the salad tableside to the acclamation of his patrons.
With a hit on his hands, Cardini haphazardly invented the Caesar salad, which you can celebrate in style at any one these fine local restaurants:
