If desired, top salad with a sprinkle of real bacon bits.
1 head romaine lettuce
2 cups (500 mL) croutons
1/4 cup (50 mL) grated parmesan cheese

1/4 cup (50 mL) vegetable oil
2 tbsp (25 mL) grated parmesan cheese

In bowl, whisk together oil, cheese, vinegar, mustard, anchovy paste, garlic, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Whisk in mayonnaise until smooth. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.)
