The dressing in this recipe is adapted from Gourmet


  • 2 romaine hearts, torn or chopped into bite sized pieces
  • 1 large apple, quartered and chopped

  • 1 egg

  1. Place all the dressing ingredients except olive oil into a blender. Blend for a few seconds to combine. With the motor running slowly drizzle in the olive oil blending until fully combined and slightly thick. Toss the dressing with the romaine in a large bowl.
