goodbye/fun facts....lots of people are eating hotdogs today...but it's also national caesar salad day.  Contrary to popular belief, the salad is not, in fact, named after any of the emperors of Ancient Rome. Rather, it is named after the Italian chef, Caesar Cardini, who created this delectable salad after immigrating to the U.S. with his brother Alex and opening a restaurant in Tijuana, Mexico (called Caesar’s). This happened during the Prohibition in the U.S. in the 1920s, which is the reason that Cardini opened his restaurant in Mexico in the first place.  It was during the Fourth of July holiday rush in 1924, that Cardini’s restaurant began to run out of supplies. Not wanting to disappoint a list of elite Hollywood clientele dining at his restaurant that day, Cardini rustled up what he could find in the way of a salad.  The salad became so populare that in 1948 The Cardini family patents the famous salad dressing.
