Orange Parmesan Vinegarette

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 orange
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!

Yeah, that was hilarious! I heard last week's episode was good as well but unfortunately I missed it. I'll have to watch it online before Thursday...
