Caesar Salad (The Original)
22 mins (prep 20, cooking 2)
14 ingredients

This is from Margaret Fultons revised 1968 cookbook (a Christmas present from the DD - my original is rather dog eared and stained) in which she states "This is the authentic recipe made for me by the Cardini family in Mexico, the creataors of the caesar salad. Particular care was taken to lay the tender, elongated cos leaves all in the one direction." Times are estimated.
