1 garlic clove, halved
1/2 cup nonfat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons white wine Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon anchovy paste
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons olive oil
3/4 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1 garlic clove, minced
2 cups (3/4-inch) sourdough bread cubes
18 cups torn romaine lettuce
1/3 cup (1 1/3 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese


Drop the garlic halves through the opening in blender lid with blender on; process until minced. Add mayonnaise and the next 5 ingredients (mayonnaise through pepper); process until well-blended. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.

Combine oil, Cajun seasoning, and minced garlic in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at high for 20 seconds. Add bread cubes; toss gently to coat. Spread bread cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet; bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Place lettuce in a large bowl. Add dressing; toss gently to coat. Sprinkle with cheese, and top with croutons.
