Greens to Envy

A few weeks ago, I was flipping through the Memphis Junior League Cookbook...always on the prowl for tasty new recipes.  I stumbled upon a Caesar salad like recipe, Salade Parmesan.  Since my energy level is hard to predict these days, this seemingly easy recipe seemed like a great way to start my king cake dinner.  It's simple to prepare and can be assembled ahead of time.  All you need to do right before serving time is toss.  Who doesn't love an irresistible salad!  Eater beware: This salad might be in your future next time you dine at Chez Diva!

Salade Parmesan

5 T Parmesan cheese, grated and divded
¼ c Olive oil
2 T lemon juice
1 t dry mustard
1/2 t pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
Dash salt
10-12 c torn salad greens

In a large salad bowl, combine 3 T Parmesan cheese through salt.  Top with salad greens.  If desired add croutons, walnuts,etc.  Toss well.  Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese.  Serve immediately.

Serves 8-10.
