For the dressing:
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 3 anchovy fillets
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 garlic clove
- juice of 1-2 lemons (start with one and add more if necessary)
- 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 2 oz parmigiano reggiano (can be cut into cubes; doesn't need to be grated)
For the garlic croutons:
- 3-4 slices torn sourdough bread
- extra virign olive oil (enough to give a light coat)
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 cloves of fresh garlic (to be grated over)
- Romaine lettuce hearts
- More parmigiano reggiano cheese to grate over
- More black pepper
- Combine all the dressing ingredients in a blender (or a large cup for an immersion blender). Blend until creamy and emulsified - it may take a couple minutes. Taste for acidity and add more lemon juice if it tastes flat. Once completed, store covered in the fridge.
- Combine garlic crouton ingredients and place in a 350° F oven for 10-20 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Check on them often and stir occasionally.
- Toss romaine lettuce with the dressing as desired and serve with copious amounts of parmigiano reggiano cheese and black pepper on top.

First I want to say thank you for the recipes! Thank you!
I have never bought or used anchovies and was wondering what brand/type to buy. Wondering also if this dressing is fishy tasting as anchovies are.
