Put the lettuce in a large salad bowl. Drizzle a scant 1/3 cup of the dressing over the lettuce and toss well. Taste and add more dressing if necessary, a teaspoon or so at a time, until the leaves are nicely dressed. Add 1/4 cup of the Parmigiano and toss well. Taste a leaf and add more cheese if you like or pass more at the table. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the croutons, toss well, and serve.
Leftover dressing is great on pasta or potato salad, or brushed on grilled chicken or fish.
Note: This recipe contains a raw egg. If that’s a concern, use a pasteurized egg.
Really Delicious! I added a bit more lemon zest, lemon juice, splash of water to loosen dressing a bit. Shaved Parm on finished salad as a nice presentation. Made croutons drizzled with evoo instead of butter--still delic. Will make again!
