“Make & Shake” (in a mason jar) fresh homemade Parmesan Lemon Vinaigrette. A tasty salad dressing recipe made in minutes with fresh ingredients!
Wait, did you say Parmesan Lemon Vinaigrette?
Um yes, I did. My dear friend Kim and I tried a new restaurant and we fell in love with their parmesan vinaigrette.
And of course we talked about it most of the way home.
Then I got to thinking, I will surprise Kim the next time she comes to dinner. And so it happened.
A fresh new twist on my regular homemade vinaigrette…
- 1 cup good olive oil
- 2 tablespoons tarragon vinegar
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese grated
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon zest
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher sea salt
- 1/2 small shallot peeled and minced (about 1 tablespoon)
In a clean mason jar with a fitted lid, add all the ingredients.
place the lid on tight, and shake for about a minute. That's it!
Re-shake jar with lid on to recombine, drizzle over salad.
You can use a blender, or Vitamix, and blend away. But a mason jar is so fast and easy, and stores perfectly in the fridge!
You can use a blender, Vitamix, or use a shaker or mason jar and just chop the shallot finely before blending. But a mason jar is so fast and easy, and stores perfectly in the fridge.
This dressing will go well on almost any salad, and would is terrific with Italian dishes.
I served this dressing on a simple green salad, with White Lasagna, and cheese toast. Yum.
So there you go, a new dressing to add to your line-up. Enjoy!
