“Any salad can be a Caesar salad if you add 23 knives”

“celebrating by eating a Caesar Salad with 23 knives” is a joke that was posted on X/Twitter by Audrey L on March 15, 2012. “This Caesar salad is really authentic - it has 23 knives in it” was posted on X/Twitter by Jo Thornely on August 20, 2012. “You can make any salad a Caesar salad by adding 23 knives” was posted on X/Twitter by hector on April 29, 2014. “Any salad can be a Ceaser salad if you add 23 knives” was posted on X/Twitter by Lokabrenna on June 11, 2014.
     
However, Roman emperor Julius Caesar, who was stabbed with 23 knives, has nothing to do with the Caesar Salad. The salad was named after Caesar Cardini (1896-1956), who first served it in Tijuana, Mexico in the 1920s.
 
“Any salad can be a Caesar salad if you stab it enough” is a related joke.
     
 
Wikipedia: Caesar salad
A Caesar salad (also spelled Cesar, César and Cesare) is a green salad of romaine lettuce and croutons dressed with lemon juice (or lime juice), olive oil, egg yolks, Worcestershire sauce, anchovies, garlic, Dijon mustard, Parmesan cheese, and black pepper.
 
Wikipedia: Julius Caesar
Gaius Julius Caesar (/ˈsiːzər/, SEE-zər; Latin: [ˈɡaːiʊs ˈjuːliʊs ˈkae̯sar]; 12 July 100 BC – 15 March 44 BC) was a Roman general and statesman. A member of the First Triumvirate, Caesar led the Roman armies in the Gallic Wars before defeating his political rival Pompey in a civil war, and subsequently became dictator from 49 BC until his assassination in 44 BC.
