Judy's Caesar Dressing

  • 1/2 c  safflower oil
  • 2 T  fresh lemon juice
  • 4 tsp  minced fresh garlic
  • 1 tsp  dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp  salt
  • 1/2 tsp  pepper
  • 4 T grated parmesan cheese

Mix all ingredients except parmesan cheese in a jar. Cover and shake well. When ready to serve, add the parmesan cheese to enough romaine lettuce to serve about 8 people. Pour desired amount of dressing over salad and toss. Dressing stores well in refrigerator, but if you add the parmesan to the rest of the ingredients it absorbs the liquid and makes the dressing thicken.

HINTS:  If you don't want to squeeze the lemon juice, use Minute Maid frozen 100% lemon juice, thawed. The only decent substitute for mincing your own garlic is to buy the chopped garlic in oil.
