Ingredients
  • 6 slices white sandwich bread, cubed
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup blue cheese dressing (see directions)
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 anchovy fillets, finely chopped
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 3 romaine lettuce hearts, roughly chopped
  • Crumbled blue cheese, for topping
Directions
  • Toss the bread with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bread and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden on all sides, about 7 minutes. Set aside and let cool slightly.

  • Whisk the dressing, parmesan, anchovies, lemon juice and mustard in a large bowl. Add the romaine and croutons; toss to coat and season with pepper. Top with blue cheese.

  • Blue Cheese Dressing

  • Puree 1/2 cup each crumbled blue cheese and sour cream, 1/3 cup buttermilk, 1 small garlic clove (smashed) and 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar in a blender. Transfer to a bowl and stir in 1/4 cup more blue cheese, 2 to 3 dashes Worcestershire sauce and/or hot sauce, and 1 tablespoon chopped parsley. Season with salt and pepper. (Makes about 2 cups.)
