A quick,  and I mean, quick,  spin to our favorite Caesar’s Salad.  You too can make this delicious dressing and dish in less than 15 minutes, which is from beginning to end.

History goes that this wonderful salad dressing was created in 1924 in Tijuana, Mexico by a French-inspired  Italian chef,  Caesar Cardini.   Cardini immigrated to America and then moved to Mexico to escape prohibition.

This recipe grew so much in popularity that in 1948 Caesar had to patent this recipe.  In 1953, Paris’s International Society of Epicure maned the Caesar Salad the greatest recipe to originate in the Americas in the last half-century.

My spin to it: Food processor. I love to simplify it without compromising the fantastic flavor. However, this way you too, can make it in your own kitchen in a flash.


I decided to add shrimps to it with prosciutto, Saltimbocca. The crispiness and salty savor of the prosciutto play well with the dressing. The shrimps bring the flavor back.
