    • 3 tbsp. Laura Lynn light olive oil
    • salt and pepper, to taste


  • 1 large clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 egg yolk

  1. Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat until hot. Add the olive oil to the hot pan, then when oil is hot, add the bread, tossing frequently. Cook until the bread is evenly toasted and browned. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. To make the salad, add garlic, egg yolk, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and Dijon mustard to a large wooden salad bowl, and whisk. Drizzle in olive oil, whisking continuously to emulsify the dressing. Add romaine lettuce, croutons, salt, pepper, and cheese, toss until well coated with the dressing.
