1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp olive oil
juice of 2 lemons
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 egg yolks
1 tbsp worstershire sauce
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 tsp anchovy paste (optional)
6 slices bacon, cooked and cut into pieces
4 slices fresh whole wheat bread loaf or whole wheat baguette, cubed
salt, pepper and garlic salt
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 heads romaine, or 3 romaine hearts
Turn off blender, and add 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese.
Stir, taste. If it is too lemony, add a little more worstershire. If it is not enough lemon, add more juice.
Let dressing sit in refrigerator for 1 hr minimum.
Meanwhile, on a baking sheet, spread bread cubes. drizzle 2 tbsp olive oil over the bread. Add any seasoning you like. (I use garlic powder, rosemary, italian seasoning, salt and pepper). Bake at 350 for 10 mins, or until golden.
Chop lettuce and place in a bowl. Top with croutons and bacon. Pour dressing over top and toss. Add a little parmesan over top of salad before serving.
Number of Servings: 6
