This was really simple and tasted great! I had my DH whip this up and we used anchovy paste rather than fillets which also helped cut down the work. We also topped the salad with some Recipe #239502 and parmesan. EXCELLENT!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pound garlic with salt to as smooth a paste as possible with mortar and pestle.
  2. Add anchovies and pound to a paste.
  3. Add lemon juice and stir vigorously with pestle to incorporate.
  4. Add oil in a very slow trickle, stirring vigorously with pestle to incorporate, and continue to stir vigorously until dressing is smooth.
  5. Toss romaine with dressing in a large bowl and grind pepper over it.
  6. COOKS' NOTE: If you don't have a mortar and pestle, mince garlic, then mash to a paste with salt using flat side of a large heavy knife. Add anchovies and mash into paste with knife. Whisk together anchovy paste and lemon juice in a small bowl, then add oil in a very slow stream, whisking until combined well.
