This romaine with garlic lemon anchovy dressing is a fantastic salad to add to your salad library. The romaine lettuce the recipe calls for is pretty standard fare. What really sets the recipe apart however, is the custom made anchovy dressing. The mild taste of the anchovies is buttressed by the lemon and Parmesan. Those not familiar with anchovies may find them to be a bit too pungent. If that’s the case, simply increase the amount of lemon.
