The Caesar salada staple of restaurant menus everywhere – is evolving. It is no longer a boring pile of lettuce, dressing, and croutons, but rather a platform for chefs to showcase their creativity and take this customer favorite to the next level.

The flavor profile of a Caesar salad generally stays the same – garlic, pepper, Parmesan, anchovy – but the presentation can vary drastically from one restaurant to the next. Whether you throw in an Asian twist, puree it into soup, or roll it up like sushi, it is still a Caesar salad. Take a look at these chefs’ interpretations of this classic American dish.
