Everything Lemon Vinaigrette

March 11, 2014

Author Notes: This simple lemon vinaigrette improves nearly everything it dresses - salad, pasta, chicken, fish, crusty bread...your hand. I buy lemons in bulk largely due to this dressing. Great on spring vegetables like asparagus and artichokes too.

  • 1/2 cup good olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated on microplane
