Caesar Salad

Yes, I realize you can just buy salad in a bag....BUT it doesn't taste NEARLY as yummy as this -- and actually, this was really easy to make AND it was fresh :)

Serves 4 to 6

3 romaine hearts, separated into whole leaves
Garlic Croutons
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire
5 tablespoon pure olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
Ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (preferably Parmigiano Reggiano), plus extra for sprinkling.

Make your Garlic Croutons

Place lettuce leaves in a large bowl.

Whisk lemon juice, mayonnaise, half the reserved garlic, and Worcestershire in a small bowl.

Drizzle lettuce with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, and toss lightly and carefully. (Clean hands work well.)  Drizzle lemon mixture over lettuce; toss again.  Sprinkle Parmesan over greens; toss again.  Sprinkle croutons over the salad; toss and serve, sprinkling each portion with a little more Parmesan cheese.
