  • 3 hearts of romaine
  • 2 fennel bulbs
  • 1/3 cup yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons anchovy paste
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 pepper + salt
  • 1 can garbanzo beans
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Chop and wash your romaine lettuce before running it through your salad spinner. Be sure the lettuce is nice and dry and then pop it into a nice big bowl.
  • Trim tops off the fennel, slice in half lengthwise and cut out the core. Then slice each half in half again and cut into quarter moons and add the romaine.
  • In a small bowl or spouted cup, combine yogurt, mayonnaise, anchovy paste, garlic, dijon, Worcestershire, lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.
  • Stir until you have a thick, creamy salad dressing.
  • Pre-heat over to 400F.
  • Drain and rinse chickpeas. Lay them on a lint-free dishtowel and roll them around to dry them off.
  • Transfer onto a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss them around to coat the chickpeas with the oil and spices.
  • Pop in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, giving the pan a shake half way through.
  • Drizzle the dressing over the salad and gently toss to coat all the veggies with the dressing. You may not need all of the dressing. I suggest starting with half and then adding more as needed/wanted.



Store extra dressing in an airtight container.  It will last up to one week in your fridge!
