I've been trying out some homemade salad dressings and I've found one that I really like. The advantage of making your own dressing is that you can cut out a lot of the added sugars, preservatives, and artificial flavors found in most store bought varieties. On to the recipe!
1 shallot (chopped)
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup grated parmesan
1 tbls white wine vinegar
Over a medium sized bowl, zest the orange before squeezing its juice into the bowl. Add remaining ingredients, wisk, and there you have it! A delicious, easy to make salad dressing.
I've been taking some mixed greens and/or romaine and adding grilled chicken, feta cheese, almonds, avacado, sunflower seeds, and chopped red onion for a tasty salad. Enjoy!
