Ingredients

Dressing:
1/4 cup / 50 ml EGG Creations! Fat Free Original or Naturegg Omega Plus, well shaken
2 tbsp / 30 ml finely grated Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp / 15 ml lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp / 10 ml Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp / 1 ml finely grated lemon zest
1/4 tsp / 1 ml Worcestershire sauce
Pinch each salt and pepper
1/4 cup / 50 ml olive oil
Salad:
2 whole-wheat pitas
9 cup / 2.25 l torn Romaine lettuce
2 tbsp / 30 ml chopped sun-dried tomatoes
shaved Parmesan (optional to taste)

Directions

  1. Dressing: Combine the eggs, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice, garlic, mustard, lemon zest, Worcestershire, salt and pepper in a blender. Blend until smooth; with the motor running, slowly drizzle in the olive oil until the mixture is combined and thickened. Makes 1/2 cup (125 mL) dressing.

  2. Salad: Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Cut pitas into wedges (separate pitas into two thin layers if they are pocket-style). Spread the pita wedges in a single layer on a baking sheet. Toast for 10 minutes or until golden and crisp.

  3. Toss the lettuce, pita chips and sun-dried tomatoes with just enough dressing to coat lightly. Serve with additional Parmesan if preferred.

Tips

  1. Make the dressing using a whisk if you don't have a blender.

  2. Top with grilled chicken or shrimp for a main course salad.

  3. Transfer un-used dressing to a clean, container with a lid and reserve, in the refrigerator, for up to 2 days.
