Otherwise known as…..The Best Dressing Ever………

As many of you know, I’m married to a stuntman. This means a few things. 1) Although he’s in his mid 40’s 52, he acts like he’s 12. 2) He will forever drive fast and take corners faster just to make me squirm. 3) Being a stunt person has a shelf life. At some point, the young kids take over.

So every so often we discuss what will come about when Pete stops doing stunts. Will he find a second career late in life? Will we trade the pretty sweet lifestyle we have now in for something more reserved so that in 10 years, he can retire early? Or will he let me take over and grow Mountain Mama into an enterprise and cook for the world. Mostly likely, it will be some combination of the three.

Which leads me to the Lemon-Parmesan Vinaigrette aka The Best Dressing Ever.

Over lunch last week, which was a simple salad dressed with this Lemon Parmesan Vinaigrette, my husband declares (with a full mouth, no less) that we should bottle this dressing and we should call it:
The Best Dressing Ever.
Catchy, I know.
He’s pretty sure it would make us millions.

While I suppose the name needs some work not to to mention the packaging, the dressing is spot on. It’s the perfect balance of savory and sweet. The parmesan makes is sooooooo good. Since its’ unlikely we’ll hit the jackpot with this vinaigrette, I feel pretty safe sharing the recipe with you.

Just don’t go stealing the name now! 🙂
