Tuscan Herb & Lemon Salad Dressing (or Marinade)

This is one of those recipes that evolved while I was making it. A little bit more of this and a tad more of that and how about some of those? This makes about 2 cups of dressing so plan on having plenty on hand for some great summer salads, or do as I am planning on doing, and use the remainder as a marinade.

1 T. Dijon Mustard
1 cup finely grated Parmesan Cheese
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 T. finely minced garlic
1 t. dried Italian seasoning
1/4 t. dried red pepper flakes
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. freshly ground black pepper

In a medium bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, and mustard until mixture begins to thicken. Whisk in remaining ingredients.

Here's a great action shot!

Taste, and adjust the flavors to suit yourself. You may want a little more garlic or a few more red pepper flakes, or a touch more salt and pepper.

Lightly dress a fresh green salad or use as a marinade for chicken or pork.
