  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • 1/2 cup grated Asiago cheese, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 8 cups chopped hearts of romaine (about 2 hearts)
  • 1 pound peeled cooked shrimp (21-25 per pound; thawed if frozen)
  • 1 cup whole-grain croutons


  1. Using a food processor, process the lemon juice, mustard, anchovies and garlic together until smooth, and then slowly pour the oil down the processor flute while the food processor is on.
  2. Add the pepper and 1/4 cup of the Asiago cheese and pulse mixture until combined.
