Every recipe website probably has this recipe. Caesar salad was the creation of an Italian, Caesar Cardini, who at the time was a restaurateur in Tijuana, Mexico. According to records, supplies in the Cardini establishment ran short one holiday weekend in 1924 so the chef experimented and that evening the Caesar's Salad was born.

Caesar Salad


  • 25 g (1 oz) olive oil
  • Fresh garlic (to flavour the oil)
  • 4 rashers smoked streaky bacon, chopped
  • 2 slices bread, diced
  • Assorted lettuce leaves e.g. endive, radiccio, lambs lettuce etc.
  • 3-4 x 15 ml spoons (3-4 tbsps) garlic vinaigrette dressing

Melt olive oil and fry bacon until crisp. Remove and keep warm. Add the bread to the pan and fry until crisp and golden, adding more olive oil if necessary.

Arrange lettuces in serving bowl and pour over dressing. Toss the leaves until well coated. Sprinkle over the bacon and croutons and serve immediately

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
