2 heads romaine lettuce (1 large & 1 small)
1 garlic bulb, cloves peeled
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 t dry mustard
1 T Worcestershire sauce
salt and freshly-ground pepper to taste
1/8 cup red wine vinegar
1 to 2 coddled eggs
1/2 t garlic salt
juice of 1/2 lemon
freshly-grated Parmesan cheese
1 anchovy fillet (optional)
Wash the romaine in cold water, vigorously shake dry and spread on paper towels – the leaves must be dry, but not limp. In a large, wooden (preferably teak) bowl, crush the garlic, using a garlic press to do so. Then, scoop up the squashings and put them through the press again – the idea is to release as much garlic "liquid" as possible. Add oil of about a 6-inch diameter to the bottom of the bowl (don't over-oil; you can always add more later). Sprinkle the dry mustard over the oil – a light dusting to color. Add the Worcestershire sauce. Then, with a fork, combine all elements to this point in the bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste and stir again. Then, add the vinegar and stir again. Crack in one egg, and stir the mixture. It should begin to gel and get loosely pudding-like. If not, add in another egg and whip again (never add more than two eggs). Shake in a tad of the garlic salt, then squeeze in the lemon juice. Whip again – the dressing will loosen up a bit with the juice, but that's okay as long as it isn't watery. Break crisp, dry romaine into the bowl. Put in about half of it, toss, and then add the rest and toss again. Add croutons and a little Parmesan. Toss again. Serve on dinner plates and sprinkle liberally with Parmesan. An anchovy fillet can be added on top of salad, if desired. Makes 6 servings.
