  • For the dressing, combine lemon juice, anchovies, Dijon, Worcester­shire sauce, garlic, pepper, cheese, and egg yolk (if using) in a food processor. Pulse to combine, then with machine running, slowly stream in the EVOO. Taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary.

  • For the croutons, melt butter with EVOO in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and bread; stir until evenly coated. Turn off heat. Sprinkle pepper and cheese over croutons and stir to coat. Transfer croutons to a baking sheet in an even layer. Bake until deeply golden and fragrant, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool for at least 10 minutes.

  • Assemble salad, combining the lettuce, arugula, blue cheese, dressing, and some croutons. (Store extra croutons in a tin or wrap in foil for up to 2 weeks.)
