On a hot summer day you want something that is easy to throw together that won't heat up your kitchen. This is another way of using up leftover grilled chicken breasts, and delicious as well. Caesar salad originated not from the Roman Empire and Julius Caesar, but from Tijuana, Mexico. It was created in 1924 by a chef and restaurant owner named Caesar Cardini.
