Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 small head romaine lettuce, washed, dried and torn into pieces

Dressing:
2 tablespoons almond meal (see hints below)
3 cloves garlic, pressed through a garlic press
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
¼ cup water

Herb & Garlic Croutons:
3-4 slices stale French or sourdough bread, trimmed of crust and cubed
1 tablespoon minced garlic
½ teaspoon dried rosemary
½ teaspoon dried marjoram
¼ teaspoon salt

Directions:
Directions:
Prepare the lettuce and place in a large bowl.
In a medium bowl, combine the almond meal, garlic, mustard, and nutritional yeast to make a paste. Whisk in the remaining dressing ingredients.
Top the lettuce with croutons (see recipe below), if desired, and toss with the dressing. Serve immediately.
Hints: Almond meal can be purchased in bags at Trader Joe’s, or you can make your own by grinding blanched or roasted almonds in a food processor until very finely ground. If you make the croutons ahead of time, this salad goes together quite quickly.


Croutons: Preheat oven to 250º. Place the bread cubes on a baking sheet in a single layer. Mix the remaining ingredients together and sprinkle over the bread cubes. Toast until lightly browned, about 25 minutes. The object is not to bake them, but to dry them out. Remove from oven; they will continue to crisp as they cool.
