This is a great salad for lunch or dinner, and perfect for the nights you don’t want to heat up the kitchen, or spend a lot of time fussing over food.
It was an entire, light and delicious supper for me, while my husband completed his meal by adding salmon.


2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire
salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 tablespoons of olive oil
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 slices of country bread, torn into pieces
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 to 2 romaine lettuce hearts, chopped
2 to 3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1/2 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half
1/4 cup shaved Parmesan cheese

Whisk lemon juice, mayonnaise, garlic, Worcestershire, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in oil to make a creamy dressing, stir in cheese and set aside.
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Place bread pieces in medium bowl, drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat.
Add bread to a hot skillet, toast, turning the pieces as needed.
Place lettuce and egg in a large bowl, add dressing and toss to coat. Add bread pieces, tomatoes and cheese and toss again. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
