Salad with Lemon Parmesan Dressing

Lemon Parmesan Salad Dressing | Cooking on the Front Burner

Remember the other day when I said I my lemons might be jealous that I used some limes? Well today I'm letting the lemons be star of the show with this Lemon Parmesan Dressing.  I'm really loving all kinds of salads this year - anything goes - lettuce, spinach, berries, chicken, cukes, eggs and the list goes on and on - whatever floats your boat and tantalizes your taste buds.  Once you have that part figured out, you might want a dressing that you can whip up yourself in about 5 minutes.  Nothing wrong with bottled dressing - some of my favorites come from that (mostly from Trader Joe's) but when I have ingredients on hand, I like to make my own.

This dressing is a bit tangy with the lemons and parmesan and a little goes a long way.  It really added a great contrast to the salad I put together which was basically a spinach salad with berries, egg and bacon.
