How to Serve: My go-to salad to serve this Parmesan Dressing on is a bed of crisp, chopped Romaine lettuce with quartered artichoke hearts, black olives, homemade croutons, and cherry tomatoes. Or try it over a bed of baby spinach with sliced almonds and dried cranberries for a super simple side salad.
