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.
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.
Toss the lettuce, pita chips and sun-dried tomatoes with just enough dressing to coat lightly. Serve with additional Parmesan if preferred.
Make the dressing using a whisk if you don't have a blender.
Top with grilled chicken or shrimp for a main course salad.
Transfer un-used dressing to a clean, container with a lid and reserve, in the refrigerator, for up to 2 days.
