Carrabba’s Creamy Parmesan Salad – “A Salad For Each Week” #41

I made this for our friend’s birthday dinner since he orders this at Carrabba’s whenever we go. It also makes a great dip for veggies and even a marinade for chicken.

Carrabba’s Creamy Parmesan Salad

Salad:

  • 8 cups romaine, chopped

  • 2 celery stalks, chopped

  • 1 large carrot, chopped

  • Black olives, sliced

Dressing

  • 1/4 cup Plain Greek Yogurt

  • 1/4 cup All Natural mayo (I use 365 light mayo)

  • 1/4 cup buttermilk

  • 1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese, freshly grated* (Not the stuff in a green plastic jar 😛 )

  • 1 large Garlic clove, minced

  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley

  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the dressing, place all ingredients into a medium mason jar. Screw on top and shake well. Place in fridge if not using immediately, and store for up to a week.

For the salad, place romaine, celery, and carrot into a large bowl. Pour 1/4 cup of dressing over salad and toss to coat. Add more dressing if desired and toss again. Divide among 4 plates and top with a scattering of olives.

*I buy a large chunk of fresh parmesan cheese and grate it in my food processor. Place it in a storage container and keep it in the freezer. It doesn’t freeze together very well which makes it easy to grab just what you need.
