Yep I am mixing it up with the Phenny and Nelly.
To my Lee nothing is as good as a fresh salad with her homemade salad dressing.
The last of our lettuce till we can get out again!
Lee uses the tiny heirloom tomatoes particularly the deep purple ones.  Usually her salads have sliced carrots, celery, thin mandolin sliced red sweet onion and Kalamata olives the large dark purple ones.  The more colorful the better.  

So here is her special recipe for the Salad Dressing.
1/2 cup mayonnaise (Lee loves the mayonnaise with olive oil)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup buttermilk (whoops Lee forgot to put the buttermilk in the picture)
1 1/2 tsp. minced roasted garlic
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
Fresh ground black pepper to taste.
Well just whisk it together

For croutons Lee takes old bread and cuts it up in no particular way.  Toss with melted butter, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes, tossing the pan every five minutes
Make sure they are crunchy and golden
Let cool

Next time we will have roasted asparagus or maybe mashed cauliflower gratin casserole.

Thanks for being a friend

    Oh I am a total salad head too... and (hold the garlic) I shall be giving that dressing a go!

    Hope you two remain content and cheerful despite all the strife around us. Thank Dog for Blogland, right? Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  6. Yum-may! This sounds super delish-gonna have to make that dressing for sure! We're of the opinion you can never have too much Parmesan cheese with meals. 😇

  7. Oh we will have to try your salad dressing!
    Thank you so much for checking on us. We definitely felt the earthquake but the epicenter was in Central Idaho and we are southeast. Was sure a bit freaky to feel it

  8. Our Oma used to make the best home made salad dressing. We can never seem to get it right. You recipe looks yummy, though.

  9. Looks wonderful...and the dressing could be a meal in itself.

  10. That dressing sounds delish! We hope you get to lick the bowl when your mom is done with the dressing.
