Ingredients

Creamy Garlic Dressing:

Roasted Garlic Croutons:

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. For the dressing: Combine all the ingredients together and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. For croutons: Slice the bread on an angle, resulting in two long triangles. Place on a sheet tray and season with olive oil, salt and pepper, seasoning both sides. Bake until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove and cool. Mound the garlic paste on the entire crouton, spreading evenly. To assemble, toss the greens with the dressing, using just enough to lightly coat and flavor the greens. Mound in the center of the plate. Place the croutons right on top of the greens. Sprinkle with the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. Garnish the plate with a couple turns of black pepper.
