In search of the origin of Caesar salad



Posted by Ed 3 mths ago
It was once called ‘the greatest recipe to originate in the Americas in 50 years’, but its origins are shrouded in mystery.

It was early Friday afternoon at the San Ysidro Port of Entry, the busiest land border crossing in the world, which connects Tijuana, Mexico, and San Diego in the US. Some Mexicans were returning home from a week of work, while some Americans were getting an early start to their weekend. I was heading to Tijuana to eat lunch at the restaurant that invented the Caesar salad.

That’s right: one of the US’s most famous dishes was invented in Mexico.
