       Title: Lemony Caesar Salad
  Categories: Salads, Ceideburg 2
       Yield: 1 servings
  
   1 1/2 tb Olive oil
     1/4 c  Chopped walnuts
       4    Thin slices whole-grain
            -bread
     1/4 c  Anchovy spread (recipe
            -follows)
     1/2 lg Head romaine lettuce,
            -rinsed and patted dry
       1 c  Caesar Dressing (recipe
            -follows)
       4 oz Parmesan cheese in one piece
  
   Julee Rosso and Sheila Lukins characterize this inventive, egg-free
   recipe from “The New Basics” (Workman, 1989) as “a lovely, light
   version of the classic”.  They suggest tucking the walnut toast under
   a couple of big, crisp leaves of romaine, so it’s a surprise.
   
   Heat the olive oil in a small skillet.  Add the walnuts and saute over
   medium heat until lightly toasted, 3 to 5 minutes.  Set aside. Toast
   the bread; then spread each slice with Anchovy Spread and scatter
   with the toasted walnuts
   
   Tear the lettuce into pieces and toss with the dressing. Place a
   piece of prepared toast on each plate and top with a portion of the
   lettuce and dressing.  Using a vegetable peeler, shave thin slices of
   Parmesan over each portion.  Serve immediately.
   
   Makes 4 servings.
