Worth the extra effort required for preparation, this recipe came from Hart's Restaurant in Toronto, Canada and deserves "home made" croutons and bacon bits rather than store bought. I usually add 2 or 3 anchovies (and eat the rest out of the can) but not everybody likes them. Its a great prelude to any Italian dinner!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash and completely dry lettuce; tear into bite sized pieces and place into a salad bowl.
  2. Combine egg yolks, mustard, garlic, Worcestershire, salt, pepper, lemon juice, Tabasco and wine vinegar; mix well.
  3. SLOWLY drizzle olive oil into the other ingredients and WHISK VIGOROUSLY until the mixture thickens. You may find it easier to use a food processor or a hand held blender.
  4. Sprinkle croutons, parmesan and bacon bits over the greens.
  5. Pour dressing over the salad and toss.
