6 ounces thick-cut bacon (6 to 8 slices), cut into pieces
2 flat anchovy fillets, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 heads romaine, quartered lengthwise, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch strips
1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan


Cook bacon in a medium skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp, 7 to 8 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. (Bacon can be cooked, cooled and covered 6 hours ahead.)

Mix anchovies, garlic, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce in a blender. Add olive oil and blend until smooth. (Dressing can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Bring to room temperature before using.)

Combine lettuce and bacon in a large bowl, drizzle with dressing and toss to coat. Add cheese and toss again. Serve immediately, sprinkled with croutons if desired.
