Just love this. One of my favorite salads ever.

Palomino Chop Chop Salad
6 ounces (about 3 cups) romaine hearts, julienned
4 leaves fresh basil, julienned
2 ounces (about 1/3 cup) provolone cheese, cubed
1 ounce (about 3 tablespoons) whole garbanzo beans
1 ounce salami, julienned
2 ounces smoked turkey breast, in 1/2-inch pieces
2 ounces (about 1/3 cup) diced tomato
Pinch grated Parmesan cheese
Pepper to taste
2 basil sprigs
1 egg yolk (pasteurized if worried about raw egg)
3 ounces balsamic vinegar
1 roasted garlic clove, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
1 ounce olive oil

To make dressing: Whip yolks to a froth. Add vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper. Continue to whip until mixture is "tight," or very well-combined. (Or, place yolks in blender and blend for 2-3 minutes.) Add other ingredients and blend 2-3 minutes longer. Drizzle in oil and continue to whip or blend until emulsified.
Makes 1/2 cup.
To assemble salad: Combine salad ingredients, reserving half the tomatoes for garnish. Toss with dressing. Garnish with remaining tomatoes, Parmesan, pepper and basil sprig. Serves 2.
