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.
- ½ tablespoon garlic salt
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon peppercorns
- 1 dash Worcestershire sauce
- ¼ teaspoon lemon juice
- ¼ cup milk
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoon dill weed
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- ½ tablespoon paprika
- ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 dash hot pepper sauce (optional)
- Mix together the garlic salt, red wine, peppercorns, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, milk, onion powder, dill weed, mayonnaise, paprika, parmesan, and hot sauce.
- Cover and refrigerate overnight, or for at least 2 hours, to let the flavors develop.
There are quite a few ingredients in this salad dressing but the recipe is easy to make because you simply have to combine them together then let the mixture sit in the refrigerator for the flavor to mellow out. In addition you will probably have all or almost all the ingredients already. This offers everything you want to have on your salad, all those flavors you love, such as creaminess, the tang of lemon and Worcestershire sauce, and an enticing zip from the peppercorns. This goes with everything from chicken and steak to grilled veggies or even a mixed leaf salad.
