Frequently asked questions:
How can we substitute the eggs in Caesar salad?

Yes, if for some reason you prefer not to use anchovies, you can use 1-2 teaspoons of Worcestershire instead.
How long can we store Caesar salad?
Because the salad contains raw eggs, the salad should be eaten at the day of preparation and cannot be served at a later date.
The salad's creation is generally attributed to restaurateur Caesar Cardini, an Italian immigrant who operated restaurants in Mexico and the United States. His daughter Rosa recounted that her father invented the salad at his restaurant Caesar's (at the Hotel Caesar in Tijuana, Mexico) when a Fourth of July rush in 1924 depleted the kitchen's supplies. Cardini made do with what he had, adding the dramatic flair of the table-side tossing "by the chef”. Cardini was living in San Diego but he was also working in Tijuana where he avoided the restrictions of Prohibition. A number of Cardini's staff have said that they invented the dish.
