Amazing Parmesan Dressing (that goes with everything!)

  • Author: ashley
  • Prep Time: 5-10 minutes
  • Total Time: 5-10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 cup 1x
  • Diet: Vegetarian


Tangy, lemony,  and fresh dressing that can be poured onto many salads or marinated in different unimaginable types of meats.



1/3 cup olive oil

1/3 cup lemon juice (about 1 large lemon)

1 cloves garlic, finely minced

1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

2 tsp pure maple syrup

1 tsp freshly chopped parsley (optional)

1 tsp salt

pepper to taste


In a mixing bowl, add all of the ingredients and mix well until a delicious homologized dressing forms. I Like to mix well for about one minute straight to crush the garlic a little better and force those ingredients together.

Enjoy immediately over a bed of salad or use it for a marinade (see notes).


If using this dressing for a marinade. I would use this recipe for every 1 1/2 pounds of meat. Multiply according for the best results.

Don’t have parsley? Use dill, fresh mint, or oregano instead.

Don’t want garlic breath? Use ginger in place of the garlic.
