For our anniversary last year, Michael and I went to this FANTASTIC Italian grille and ordered all the courses. The salad I ordered came with a delicious creamy parmesan dressing I’ve wanted to re-create since I got home. I know you’re not supposed to, but I looooove a good salad dressing when I go out to eat. I even usually get it… ON the salad *gasp!*
I got the idea in my head to try adjusting a recipe for ranch dressing by adding in parmesan and basil pesto. The result was mouthwatering.
I thought it had all the goodness of a Caesar dressing without the anchovy. It paired very well with a basic chopped salad, and it would be delicious as a sandwich spread, a vegetable dip, or on a wedge salad with a bit of bacon and tomato.
I love when I can recreate restaurant favorites at home. It might not be an exact copy, but it sure is delicious.Print
