let's do it
 

dressing

  • Place Parmesan cheese, garlic, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and Dijon mustard in bowl of food processor or blender and pulse until cheese and garlic are chopped completely. Scrape sides of bowl or pitcher once blended and add remaining ingredients. Process until smooth and gradually add water until you've reached the desired consistency.

croutons

  • To make the croutons, heat butter and olive oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add bread cubes once butter is completely melted. Toss bread lightly to coat all sides in oil. Turn croutons frequently until all sides have become golden brown and crispy then move to plate lined with paper towel. Sprinkle croutons with a light dusting of garlic powder and onion powder while they are still warm. Dust croutons lightly with dried parsley by crushing it between your fingers while sprinkling. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

salad

  • Pour desired amount of dressing over chopped romaine and toss to coat. Sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese, add croutons and toss once again. Season with fresh cracked black pepper. Serve and enjoy!
