12) Sprinkle liberally with cheese and croutons and toss lightly once again.

13) Serve the salad right away on chilled salad plates, after topping each serving with 2 anchovy fillets. The salad is an excellent appetizer, side dish as well as snack. Goes really well with roast beef as well as steak.
