  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • zest and juice of 1 smallish lemon (about 2 tablespoons of juice)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced and mashed
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • garlic powder to taste (suggest 1/4 teaspoon)
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Romano cheese (grate finely)


Make the dressing with or without the cheese, but if you make it without, the cheese should be sprinkled over the salad.

To make without the cheese: Add all ingredients except for the cheese to a lidded jar or blender. Shake well or blend. Taste and adjust flavors.

To make dressing with cheese, a blender is highly recommended. Place all ingredients in blender and blend, pulsing several times. Taste and adjust flavors, then reblend. Transfer to a container with a lid; the dressing will separate and will need to be shaken back together.

Note: while this dressing is great just after it is made, it gets better and better after it sits for a bit. Try to make it 24 hours in advance, if possible.
