  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup salted, roasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
Directions
  1. In a food processor, chop the garlic 1 clove at a time. Add the anchovies, yolk, mustard and zest; process to a paste. With the machine on, drizzle in the EVOO until dressing thickens. Add the cheese and lemon juice.

Tip Crunch Time
  • Swap in a simple raw salad in place of a second cooked vegetable side dish. This fresh side adds color and crunch to the plate and comes together in a snap.
