  1. Smash the garlic clove with the flat side of a knife. Sprinkle with salt and drag the heel of the knife over the garlic, chopping and scraping the knife over the board until you have a paste.
  2. In a bowl, whisk the garlic paste, minced anchovies, Dijon, yogurt, pepper, and half the cheese until well blended. Serve tossed with Romaine lettuce and sprinkled with the remaining Parmesan cheese.

Chef Tips

If you can find them, use salted anchovies for this. Be sure to rinse them well before chopping. If you’re not a fan of anchovies no matter how they’re packed, try adding a couple of teaspoons of rinsed capers, finely chopped, to your dressing.
