by in Community, May 1st, 2016

Aunt Trish's Salad DressingThe ultimate fix-it-and-forget-it recipe, The Pioneer Woman’s big-batch salad dressing works well on top of a simple green salad, and she notes that it can also star tossed in a pasta salad. Her secret? A classic combination of nutty Parmesan and bright, fresh lemon juice, which add bold taste to her oil-based dressing. If you’re planning to serve this at a party, keep in mind that Ree Drummond recommends letting the dressing chill for a day before serving it; this will give the flavors of the ingredients a chance to marry.
