Red-romaine

 

I bought this red romaine at the greenmarket only because it was so beautiful. I already had 2 heads of lettuce in the fridge, but convinced myself that it wouldn’t go to waste.   So what to do except make a fake Caesar salad for lunch. This is what I do – I make a standard vinaigrette with extra virgin olive oil and champagne vinegar; then I add about ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese and a mashed anchovy or two to the mix. I sliver the romaine and toss it with some herbed croutons (not the kind in a box in the supermarket, please – make your own), drizzle the dressing over the top and then shave more cheese over the top. A perfect lunch.
