Cooking and Preparation:

The Dressing

  1. Chop together anchovy fillets, garlic, and pinch of salt. Then scrape into a medium bowl. Whisk in lemon juice, and mustard. Adding the mayonnaise then vegetable oil; whisk until dressing is thick and glossy. Whisk in Parmesan. Season with salt, pepper, and more lemon juice, if desired. 

The Croutons

  1. Tearing, not cutting the bread ensures nooks and crannies that catch the dressing and add texture. Preheat oven to 375°. Toss bread with olive oil on a baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. Bake, tossing occasionally, until golden, 10–15 minutes. 

The Lettuce

  1. Use whole leaves they provide the ideal mix of crispness, surface area, and structure.
