Not exactly how it might be made as Caesar Cardini made it years ago, it
has morphed into many things over the years. Most restaurants now buy a
pre-prepared bottled dressing and then add, grated or shredded
parmesan cheese and sometimes homemade croutons. Often the croutons are
even bought from their food service supplier and the romaine is
pre-washed and pre-cut too! Where are the anchovies? Well most people
don't like them so they many be left out of the salad completely.
Somewhere, after Cardini created the salad, Worcestershire Sauce was
added to the composition. This may have happened when Chefs were told of
the dish and they tried to recreate it. I feel that the Worcestershire
addition is a good thing.
