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.
