As you know, I love all things lemon. Of course, my love of cheese is legendary. So, if you combine the two into a great salad dressing, well, BRING ON THE SALAD GREENS!
This dressing is easily shaken to blend all the ingredients together in a jar with a snug fitting lid. The amount of lemon juice will depend on the size of the lemons you use, but a good starting point is 3 - 4 T. of juice. It's better to start with less and add more!
1 cup light olive oil
1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese (use the best you can afford!)
3 - 4 T. fresh lemon juice
1/2 t. lemon zest
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. freshly ground black pepper
2 - 3 garlic cloves, grated
1/4 t. dried Italian seasoning
1/8 t. red pepper flakes
Add all ingredients to a jar, make sure the lid is on TIGHT and shake to mix. If you're not using immediately, refrigerate. When ready to serve, let dressing reach room temp and shake to blend.
