Ingredients

  • 2⁄3 cup Olivier Toasted Parmesan and Garlic
  • Dipping Oil
  • 2 to 3 slices country bread, each 1⁄2 inch thick,
  • cut into 1⁄2-inch cubes
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 anchovy fillets, minced (optional)
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 hearts of romaine lettuce, washed, dried and
  • leaves separated
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

Preparation

  • 1 In a large sauté pan over medium heat, warm 1/3 cup of the oil. Add the bread cubes and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 3 minutes. Transfer the croutons to a paper towel-lined plate, season with salt and set aside.

  • 3 In a bowl, whisk the egg yolk until smooth. While whisking, slowly drizzle in the remaining 1/3 cup oil. The mixture should be creamy. Whisk in the lemon juice, anchovies, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.

  • 5 Place the lettuce leaves and the croutons in a large bowl. Add just enough dressing to generously coat the leaves and toss until they are evenly coated. Divide the salad among 4 chilled salad plates and garnish with the chives. Pass any remaining dressing at the table. Serve immediately.
