Ingredients

2 large romaine lettuce
outer leaves removed & discarded
*
¼ cup walnuts
optional
For the dressing:
2 tablespoons tahini (sesame paste)
roasted
2 ounces anchovy fillets
drained of oil, rinsed and chopped
4 medium garlic cloves
chopped
*
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil, extra-virgin
1 x salt and black pepper
to taste
*

Directions

Rinse lettuce, cut into bite size pieces, and dry.

Try to get lettuce as dry as possible so dressing is not diluted.

If you have a salad spinner it is best.

Blend dressing ingredients together for 1 to 2 minutes, drizzling the olive oil in at the end a little at a time.

Toss romaine with desired amount of dressing and walnuts and chicken if desired.

There will be dressing left over.

It keeps very well in your refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

The dressing was absolutely tasty, even though I didn't add anchovies. Toasted walnuts were a great addition to replace the croutons, which gave the salad yummy nuttiness. Within less than 10 minutes, the salad was ready to serve, it was deliciously refreshing and crunchy.
