  • Salad:.
  • Wash and dry salad greens well and place them in a large bowl.

  • Citrus Parmesan Dressing:.
  • In a bowl combine the grated Parmesan, orange zest and juice, and the shallots.
  • Whisk in the red wine vinegar.
  • Whisk in the olive oil and finish by seasoning with salt and pepper.

  • A few more ideas from Heidi:.
  • Gently heat the dressing and toss with spinach, for a warm, slightly wilted dinner salad.
  • Use the vinaigrette as a marinade.
  • Use it to toss with pasta (stuffed cheese filled pasta is an especially good choice).
