Antipasto Salad with Herbs and Cheese Dressing
1 cup tomato juice
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon oregano flakes
1 teaspoon sweet basil flakes
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all dressing ingredients in a glass jar with a tight fitting
lid. Shake until blended. Store in refrigerator for several hours
before using. Dressing will last for 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
Yields about 2 cups.
For salad: depending on the number of people you are serving, use
lettuce, tomatoes, sliced mushrooms, black pitted olives, sliced
mozzarella cheese, garbanzos, artichoke hearts, or any blanched (not
raw) vegetable, in any combination or any quantity. Place the salad
on a large platter in decorative fashion. Do not toss, but set
ingredients individually. Drizzle with a little dressing and pass
the remaining dressing at the table.
