Charlemagne Salad with Hot Brie Dressing
A unique flavor experience!
| ||garlic croutons|
|1⁄2 c||olive oil|
|4 t||minced shallots or scallions|
|2 t||minced garlic|
|1⁄2 c||white wine vinegar|
|2 T||lemon juice|
|4 t||Dijon mustard|
|8 oz||ripe, room temperature brie cheese, rind removed and cut into small pieces|
| ||freshly ground black pepper|
|2 ||medium heads romaine or leaf lettuce, or fresh spinach, washed, dried and torn into small pieces|
Heat the olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onions and garlic and cook until golden, about 5 minutes. Take care not to over-brown the garlic, as it will result in a bitter taste. Blend in the remaining seasonings and add the cheese a little at a time, stirring constantly. Toss the greens and garlic croutons together in a bowl with the hot dressing and serve.
