Creamy Parmesan Dressing is a kitchen must have. As in you must have it.
This Creamy Parmesan Dressing is perfect on salads, sandwiches, pastas and meats. Think you can’t make your own dressing at home? YES YOU CAN!
I went out to lunch with a bunch of my colleagues the other day. We had a great lunch, and I actually ordered something different than usual.
Can I digress for a moment? Is anyone else JUST LIKE ME where they always order the same thing when they go out? No matter what? Because the new food might not be as good as the food you already know you love? It’s an illness I swear. But I am determined to overcome this. Because if I don’t I’m going to have to deal with FOMO. (Fear of Missing Out, I know, I’m now over 40, I also need explanations of all of these acronyms)
I ordered a farro dish that was amazing. Really amazing. Better than my usual dish (maybe I am over that pesky order the same thing every time illness). The farro was lightly coated in a creamy parmesan dressing. I knew I wanted to recreate the dish, but I also knew I would need to start with creating the dressing. Oh sure, I could have used a store bought creamy parmesan dressing, after all there a million to choose from. But I really wanted to do it from scratch. Because it’s always better homemade.
Farro is one great way to use this creamy parmesan dressing. But it can also be used on salads, sandwiches, pasta salad, vegetables, you name it. And that my friends is versatility. Didn’t I already say you must have it?
Creamy Parmesan Dressing. A kitchen staple, indeed.
