Featured Recipe: Caesar Wrap

Who doesn’t love a good Caesar salad? Most people assume the Caesar salad dish originated from Rome, being named after the Roman Emperor Julius Caesar. However, the real origin of the traditional salad was invented in Mexico much later in history. Restauranteur Chef Caesar Cardini developed the Caesar Salad while hosting a Fourth of July celebration in Tijuana. He ran out of food, and simply threw the ingredients he had lying around the kitchen into a unique salad. Due to its success, July 4th has become known as National Caesar Salad Day.

The traditional ingredients required to make the dressing are anchovies, olive oil, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, Dijon mustard, lime juice, and raw eggs. Over the years, different variations of this recipe have been made, including our Kidco Kitchen Chicken Caesar Wrap, which offers a simpler and healthier version of the traditional favourite. Our version ditches the traditional anchovies and raw eggs for a safer and equally delicious alternative to the tangy dish. And what better way to get your kids to enjoy salad than packaging up the wonderful dish into a kid friendly wrap!
