Once again, we will be dealing with one of probably the best known salad classics. So with the imperial salad. Its origin is attributed to an immigrant from Italy Cesar Cardiniwho managed several restaurants in Mexico and America at the beginning of the 20th century.
In the proverbial diversion of raw materials, he composed this delicious and nutritious salad with his own ingenuity, which originally contained large leaves of soft lettuce, anchovies, hard-boiled eggs and vinaigrette.
Today’s modified imperial salads, popular around the world, usually contain chicken. As such, then; with lots of vegetables, eggs, cheese and meat and some small carbohydrates will be perfect and just on our plate when we have finished a good workout on the bike or maybe for a late dinner with lots of vegetables and of proteins. Rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals, it will take good care of the supply of lost substances.
Of course, let me add again that you can again play with your favorite ingredients, because the salad will kindly accept any possible combination that comes into your head.
