  • Summary

    She claims it will hold up well on the second day; I take her word for that but I simply can't imagine having sufficient willpower to leave it long enough to test the premise. And here's a tip -- Trader Joe's carries beautiful kale, prepped and washed. Save yourself some time and pick up a bag. Oh, and one last thing; Ms. Moskin suggests throwing the bread in naked into a hot oven. Never one to miss an opportunity to punch things up, I heated up a little garlic in olive oil and drizzled it over the croutons right before baking -- and then added a couple good pinches of salt. This just makes your croutons that much sexier -- and what's the point of a bland crouton? C'mon, if watching calories is your main concern here, you're barking up the wrong recipe. For heaven's sake, go for it.

    Ingredients

    • For the croutons (she says optional, I say mandatory):
    • 1 small (or ½ large) day-old loaf peasant-style crusty bread
    • For the salad:
    • 12-16 ounces green kale and romaine lettuce hearts, in roughly equal amounts
    • 1 large or 2 small garlic cloves
    • 4 to 6 anchovies
    • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard, more to taste
    • salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 2 Tbs. freshly squeezed lemon juice, more to taste
    • 1 egg
    • 4 ounces freshly grated Parmesan, plus an extra chunk for serving
