et tu, brute?

Romaine Lettuce + Red Onions + (leftover) Chicken + Pecorino Romano + Garlic Ciabatta Toast + Lemon Juice + Freshly Ground Pepper + Caesar Dressing* = Salad


 *Interesting tidbit: Caesar salads are not, technically, a traditional Italian dish.  Most believe it was created by Caesar Cardini, (an Italian-born Mexican,) in California or Mexico.  The two ruling stories say he either made it on the 4th of July when his restaurant was depleted of supplies or for a group of Hollywood stars.  A third rumor is that Caesar's brother, Alex, actually invented it.  Either way, I LOVE it!!
