Lemon Parmesan Dressing

There is no need to buy store-bought dressings when you can make your own with this tangy and deliciously balanced Lemon Parmesan Dressing. This Mediterranean salad dressing is one of my favorites, is super easy to make, and is better than anything you can get in a bottle.  It will last up to a week in the refrigerator.  Besides a salad dressing, this can also be used to top fish before baking.
