  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) black pepper
  • 2 cups (500 mL) Milk
  • 2 eggs yolks

  • 2 garlic cloves minced

Preparation

Combine mustard, flour, salt and pepper in the top of a double boiler. Stir in milk. Beat in egg yolks. Cook over boiling water (or on gentle heat directly on stove), stirring constantly, until mixture has thickened. Remove from heat.

Stir in Worcestershire, Tabasco, garlic, anchovies, vinegar and oil. Cool. Refrigerate until ready to use. Just before serving, adjust reasoning if necessary.

Wash and dry lettuce well. Break into bite-sized pieces. Just before serving, toss with enough dressing to coat leaves well. Sprinkle with bacon, croutons and Canadian Parmesan cheese. Toss well.

Tips

Note: Any leftover dressing can be stored for one week in the refrigerator. It can be used for potato, pasta or chicken salads.
