Ingredients

Dressing:
1/4 cup / 50 ml

2 tbsp / 30 ml
finely grated Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp / 15 ml
lemon juice
1
clove garlic, minced
2 tsp / 10 ml

1/4 tsp / 1 ml
finely grated lemon zest
1/4 tsp / 1 ml

Pinch
each salt and pepper
1/4 cup / 50 ml
olive oil
Salad:
2
whole-wheat pitas
9 cup / 2.25 l
torn Romaine lettuce
2 tbsp / 30 ml
chopped sun-dried tomatoes
shaved Parmesan (optional to taste)

Directions

  1. Dressing: Combine the eggs, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice, garlic, mustard, lemon zest, Worcestershire, salt and pepper in a blender. Blend until smooth; with the motor running, slowly drizzle in the olive oil until the mixture is combined and thickened. Makes 1/2 cup (125 mL) dressing.

  2. Salad: Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Cut pitas into wedges (separate pitas into two thin layers if they are pocket-style). Spread the pita wedges in a single layer on a baking sheet. Toast for 10 minutes or until golden and crisp.

  3. Toss the lettuce, pita chips and sun-dried tomatoes with just enough dressing to coat lightly. Serve with additional Parmesan if preferred.

Tips

  1. Make the dressing using a whisk if you don't have a blender.

  2. Top with grilled chicken or shrimp for a main course salad.

  3. Transfer un-used dressing to a clean, container with a lid and reserve, in the refrigerator, for up to 2 days.
