Creamy Parmesan Peppercorn Salad Dressing

This flavorful parmesan peppercorn salad dressing recipe is made with mayonnaise, milk, and parmesan for creaminess. You might need to use extra milk if the dressing is too thick but this depends on your mayonnaise because some kinds are thicker than others are. Use freshly grated parmesan, not the powdered parmesan that comes in a can or sachet.

If you want to make this dressing healthier, you can use skim milk and reduced fat mayonnaise. You might find that you need to add a little more of the seasonings if you do this, since sometimes reduced fat options have a subtler flavor, and you might need to balance out the flavor of the salad dressing if base it on low-fat or fat-free items.

The hot pepper sauce in this parmesan peppercorn salad dressing is optional but add it if you want an extra zing. You can use whole peppercorns (and either remove them before serving, or leave them in) or grind them into the dressing. It depends how hot you want the salad dressing to be. Serve this parmesan peppercorn salad dressing with your favorite salad. Mixed leaves, red onion, corn, and croutons would go well with this, for example.
