Caesar Salad

Named for the Roman emperor and a staple in virtually every Italian-American restaurant, Caesar salad was in fact invented in Tijuana, Mexico in the 1920's. Classic versions call for whole leaves of lettuce, and proper dining etiquette says the leaves may be picked up in one's fingers. Carbone's version is the more familiar version, with bite-sized shred of romaine... to be eaten with a fork.
