This dressing, born from a love for classic flavors, brings together the richness of mayonnaise, the tang of Dijon mustard, and the umami punch of grated Parmesan.

- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- In a bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, grated Parmesan, minced garlic, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce until smooth and well combined.
- Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper according to your taste preferences. Remember, the Parmesan is already salty, so go easy on the salt.
- Once the flavors are well incorporated, cover the bowl and refrigerate the dressing for at least an hour. This helps the flavors meld together beautifully.
- Drizzle this luscious dressing over your fresh and crisp romaine lettuce, sprinkle some additional Parmesan on top, and toss it all together for an unforgettable Caesar salad.
