Anneka’s Caesar Salad

Ask your grocer for Le-tuiceIngredients:
* 1 head of Romaine
* 1/3 cup of olive oil with about 3 cloves of garlic pressed into it (or cut, or whatever)
* 3 tbsp of regular red vinegar
* Lots of Worcester sauce (probably about 5-6 healthy shakes of the bottle)
* 1 lemon, cut in half and squeezed into the salad
* Salt
* Pepper
* Parmasean cheese

Chef’s Notes:
Everything can go in all at once, though I basically put it in in the order I wrote it out for you. I wait and put the cheese on last minute so it doesn’t get super soggy. And yes, it goes very well with lasagna — any Italian food, actually.
