RECIPE FROM "THE
(This recipe comes from Former First Lady Barbara Bush)
2-3 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup olive oil
4 cups bread cubes (1/4")
4 qt. Assorted lettuce greens
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Pepper
12 tsp. Olive oil
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
7 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
Cut garlic into quarters and let stand in 1/2 cup olive oil overnight (in room temp).
Put bread cubes into shallow pan. Toast them in slow oven (300 degrees) for 30 minutes until golden brown--turning with a fork. After cooling, wrap them in wax paper until needed.
Sprinkle lettuce greens with Parmesan cheese, blue cheese, salt, and pepper. Add olive oil (NOT the oil the garlic was soaked in).
Mix together one egg, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour over salad and toss.
Toss the toasted bread crumbs (croutons) with the garlicky olive oil mixture, add to salad, and toss well. Do this at the last moment so the croutons don't get soggy.
