Hail Caesar! Beware the Ides of March!

Hail Caesar! Beware the Ides of March!

I could babble on about ancient Roman history, Caesar’s murder on the Ides of March, or get all mystical about the soothsayer who warned him about the date. But honestly, the only thing Caesar that I care about is Caesar Cardini an Italian immigrant that ran restaurants in Mexico and the US, and that is because he is attributed as being the creator of the Caesar Salad. Which in my opinion, is one of the greatest gastronomic creations of all time!

Caesar Salad

Caesar Salad


  • Ingredients according to the Hotel Caesar’s recipe from about 2006:


There are limitless variations. However, some of the more common are:

  • other varieties of lettuce
  • grilled poultry (most often chicken), meat, shellfish, or fish
  • capers
  • Romano cheese
  • anchovies
  • bacon

I’m a bit of a dictator – at least when it comes to my Caesar salad. First and foremost…the recipe says “coddled egg”, for all you restaurants out there that hard boil the egg…that is NOT coddled. I want my yolk runny! I can survive having it completely traditional if the egg is done properly, however, in my break from tradition it has anchovies and bacon…cause everything is better with bacon. Oh, and PLEASE don’t put chicken on my Caesar!

Give me a great Caesar salad and a crisp glass of white wine and I am a perfectly happy girl!

Hail Caesar (Cardini)! You don’t have to beware the Ides of March!
