    The Croutons

    The Salad


    1. 1
      To prepare the croutons, preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
    2. 2
      Brush the baguette slices with olive oil on both sides, then cut each slice in half to make half-rounds. Place on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
    3. 3
      Put the mayonnaise in a small bowl and slowly whisk in the olive oil, lemon juice, fish sauce and garlic.
    4. 4
      Add several grinds of pepper. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
    5. 5
      Toss the romaine with enough of the dressing to coat the leaves nicely.
    6. 6
      Add the Parmesan and croûtons and toss again.
    7. 7
      Serve immediately on chilled plates.

      Wow! This was an excellent salad dressing. Very creamy and the fish sauce is a perfect substitute for anchovies and much simpler to use! Enjoyed with baked ziti and a nice bold red wine.
