This is What You Need
For the Dressing
For the Salad
This is What You Do
  1. Mix the ingredients for the Dressing together in a jar or a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Trim the hard, white centers from the lettuce. Wash and dry the lettuce, then tear or chop it into bite size pieces and place on a large platter or in a large salad bowl.
  3. Sprinkle chopped parsley and Romano cheese on top of the lettuce.
  4. Sprinkle on the blue cheese (if using).
  5. Shake or whisk the dressing to mix well and ladle as much as you like on the lettuce.
  6. Toss the lettuce, cheese and dressing until all the lettuce leaves are well coated.
Recipe Notes

This makes a great side salad for jambalaya, etouffe or gumbo or an entree salad with some grilled chicken or shrimp. Any leftover dressing can be kept in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks. Just pour it on lettuce topped with Romano cheese for a quick treat.
