Caesar Dressing (v, gf)

Serve One Another with Love

It used to be that when I heard the term Caesar Salad what came to mind was a picture of Julius Caesar reclining on an imperial sofa and eating a, you guessed it, Caesar Salad.  For some reason I always assumed that the Caesar Salad originated with those long dead Roman emperors and funneled down through the ages.

Eggless Salad

Raw Vegan Egg Salad

Sometimes I hear a phrase and it strikes me as being odd, so I Google it to see where it originated.  Case in point is the phrase “good egg”, as in “he/she’s a good egg”, meaning a good person.  Turns out this phrase became popular around 1900, but has it’s origins dating back to when the phrase “bad egg” was popular in the 1850’s.

For me, and I think for many Americans, I picture some proper English lady or gentlemen sipping tea and delicately nibbling on a flakey little cake, possibly in either the library of a large home, or while sitting by a window overlooking a garden.
