Puntarelle is a crisp, spiky Italian green related to chicory. If not, escarole is a great substitute.


  • ½ cup coarsely torn fresh breadcrumbs
  • 8 oil-packed anchovy fillets
  • 1 small shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 ounce Parmesan, finely grated (about 1 cup), plus more for serving
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 4½ teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 dashes of hot sauce (preferably Tabasco)
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 cups thinly sliced puntarelle or torn escarole leaves
  • 4 boquerones (marinated white anchovies), chopped (optional)

Recipe Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Toss breadcrumbs with oil and dried oregano on a rimmed baking sheet and season with salt. Toast, tossing halfway through for even browning, until golden brown, 8–10 minutes. Let cool.

  • While the bread is toasting, blend anchovies, egg yolk, shallot, garlic, Parmesan, vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce in a blender until smooth. With motor running, gradually stream in both oils; blend until smooth and emulsified. Season dressing with salt and pepper.

  • Toss puntarelle, boquerones (if using), and 2 Tbsp. dressing in a large bowl (reserve remaining dressing for another use); season with salt.

  • Serve salad topped with breadcrumbs and more Parmesan.

  • Do Ahead: Dressing can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill.
