Origins of Caesar Salad?

There are different tales as to who invented Caesar salad. Caesar (Cesare) Cardini Caesar was born near Lago Maggiore, Italy, in 1896. He emigrated to the U.S. after World War I with his brother Alex. The Cardini's lived in San Diego but operated a restaurant in Tijuana to circumvent Prohibition. According to Caesar's daughter Rosa, on July 4th, 1924, the salad was created on a busy weekend at Caesar's Restaurant. It is said that Caesar was short of supplies and didn't want to disappoint the customers so he concocted this salad with what was on hand.
