There is no vinegar used in Caesar dressing ever.
"There is a widely held misconception that it is named after Julius Caesar, but the salad's creation is generally attributed to restaurateur Caesar Cardini (an Italian-born Mexican).Cardini was living in San Diego but also working in Tijuana where he avoided the restrictions of Prohibition. As his daughter Rosa (19282003) reported, her father invented the dish when a Fourth of July 1924 rush depleted the kitchen's supplies. Cardini made do with what he had, adding the dramatic flair of the table-side tossing "by the chef"."

Chilled or Room Temperature
Main ingredient(s) Romaine Lettuce
Garlic Cloves (rubbed into side of wooden bowl)
Lemon Juice squeezed
Olive Oil drizzled
Egg whole and coddled
Worcestershire Sauce 1 tsp
Black Pepper
Toss Table side
