Lemon-Parmesan Salad Dressing

Every once in a while a salad just seems absolutely perfect for dinner….don’t you agree? It is a nice escape from a protein-packed or carb-heavy meal because it leaves me feeling light and never weighed down.

The other night I had a severe craving for some healthy greens mixed in with some fresh veggies. Now, I know that the weather has been very chilly lately so you’re probably thinking that serving a salad for dinner was probably a bit unusual. Think again! This recipe included a nice combination of fresh ingredients that was a great dinner in cold weather. It also tastes delicious in warm weather too!

Lemon-Parmesan Dressing


  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel


  1. Whisk together all ingredients in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and chill until the salad is ready to serve.

A couple of lovely ladies who I work with started a salad club and it’s so cute to see them work as a team preparing their lunches (I can often be found devouring leftovers from the previous night’s dinner). One day, they offered to make me a salad and I swear, my salads have never been the same. They included such fun and easy ingredients that made for a perfect salad. And the big bonus was that they turned me on to turkey bacon. There, I said. Yes, I love turkey bacon now.

Every once in a while, I find myself craving this salad for dinner. My husband and I always end up devouring every last morsel. It’s super tasty, easy to prepare and very inexpensive.

Here are the salad fixings for a refreshing salad that I know you will enjoy:

  • Baby Romaine lettuce
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Turkey bacon, crumbled
  • Garbanzo beans
  • Cucumber
  • Goat Cheese, crumbled
  • Mushrooms
  • Croutons

Combine all of the ingredients (quantities are to your liking) into a large bowl, toss with the Lemon-Parmesan Salad Dressing and scoop into individual bowls.
