I would have NEVER in a million years guessed that one of my favorite salads, the Caesar salad, was actually invented in Tijuana, Mexico. Apparently, though, it was invented by Caesar Cardini, an Italian who emigrated to California and opened a restaurant in Mexico to avoid post-war Prohibition.
But he's not the only one who's serving up some pretty delicious greens the Latin way. From an actual Mexican take on a Caesar salad, to a Cuban green salad with avocados, a Valencian salad from Daisy Martinez, a rock shrimp Cobb salad (also with avocados, from one of my favorite Latina food bloggers, Always Order Dessert) and a raw kale and garbanzo salad (from my OTHER favorite Latina food blogger, Poor Girl Eats Well), we Latinos may not have our greens very often but when we do, MAN are the salads amazing! Enjoy these with your family.
