1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fat-free sour cream

3 tinned anchovy fillets
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 cup plus 3 Tbsp. olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 12-inch baguette, sliced in half lengthwise
3 romaine hearts, outer leaves removed, hearts halved lengthwise (keep root intact)

1. Make dressing: Puree mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, minced garlic, anchovies, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and mustard in blender until smooth. With motor running, drizzle in 1/2 cup oil and blend. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate.

2. Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush cut side of bread with some of remaining oil. Grill bread, turning once, until toasted, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove bread from grill and rub with cut side of halved garlic clove. Cut into 1-inch pieces.

3. Brush all sides of lettuce with remaining oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill lettuce, turning frequently, until lightly charred around edges, 2 to 3 minutes.

4. Chop lettuce and divide among 6 bowls. Sprinkle with Parmesan, scatter baguette pieces over and drizzle with some of the dressing. Serve immediately, passing additional dressing on the side.
