Manchego cheese has found its way into many supermarket cheese sections, but if you can’t find it or if you’re not satisfied with the quality, try another Spanish cheese, such as Mahón. Murray’s Cheese Shop in New York City sells manchego, Mahón, and many other Spanish cheeses.
Put the greens in a salad bowl or on a platter. Toss with the romesco sauce to lightly coat (add more if necessary). Arrange the anchovies, if using, on top and sprinkle on shavings of cheese and the olives, or plate and garnish each serving individually. Have a pepper mill and extra romesco sauce on the table.

First time eating salad with romesco, really liked it. I added a bit of thinly sliced red onion. Next time I would omit the anchovies....prior to this dish I had only used them in Caesar dressing and wanted to try them another way, but I didn't enjoy the flavour, even with chopping them. Couldn't find Manchego and was out of asiago, so I used some shaved parmesan.
