  • 1 medium oval country loaf, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • 2 garlic cloves—1 minced and 1 halved
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons anchovy paste
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon capers—rinsed, drained and minced

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the broiler. Brush both sides of the bread slices with olive oil and arrange on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil the slices 6 inches from the heat for about 3 minutes, turning once, until crisp and golden on the outside but still slightly soft in the center. Rub one side of each slice with the halved garlic.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the minced garlic with the lemon juice, anchovy paste, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and capers. Gradually whisk in the 3/4 cup of olive oil and season the dressing with salt and pepper.

  3. In a large bowl, toss the romaine with the Parmigiano-Reggiano and the dressing. Season with salt and pepper. Mound the salad on the toasts, garnished with shaved cheese.
