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.
