The Love of Parmesan & Garlic

To double the batch and keep the cost down, I added a 1/2 teaspoon of cornstarch and a cup of water as thickening agent. I followed by 3 chopped garlic toes. I did not add the garlic salt. I also doubled on the Parmesan cheese.

Not a Bad Dressing

It tastes great, but unless all the ingredients are on sale it is far cheaper to purchase a good-quality bottled dressing. It doesn't have preservatives, so must be used in one sitting.

Very Good

For a diabetic, this is a great light salad if you use low fat cheeses and milk. It has many of the ingredients we need on a daily basis and it sure is filling. If you use the recipe ingredients suggested, this is enough for a meal!
