Buy Parmesan cheese in a block. Use a grater for the salad cheese and a vegetable peeler for the garnish shavings.

Ingredients
  • 8 cloves garlic
  • ½ cup olive oil, plus
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 12-inch baguettes, cut into 48 1/2-inch thick slices
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus shavings for garnish
  • 3 cups shredded breast from a large rotisserie chicken
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 4 cups baby salad greens, romaine, if possible
Directions
  1. 1. Adjust oven rack to center position and heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. 2. Mince garlic in a food processor or blender. With motor running, slowly add 1/2 cup of the olive oil. Continue to process for about 30 seconds, then strain oil through a fine-mesh strainer. Add 2/3 of the garlic back into the oil, and reserve remaining garlic for the dressing.

Meanwhile, whisk mayonnaise, lemon zest and 2 Tbs. lemon juice, Worcestershire, grated Parmesan, and reserved garlic in a small bowl. (It can be covered and refrigerated for several hours.)
  4. 4. When ready to serve, toss dressing with chicken; season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss salad with remaining 2 tsps. of olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle in remaining 1 Tb. lemon juice; toss again. Top each toast with a portion of greens, chicken and a Parmesan shaving. (Toasts can stand uncovered for up to 2 hours.)
