1. Use a food processor or hand mixer but I find that using a hand blender is your best bet.
2. Crack a whole egg ( yes - whole egg at room temperature - TIP: take out your egg 15 minutes before using) into your container that you are given with you hand blender or just place it into your food processor.
3. Add all the ingredients except the grapeseed oil ( or Olive oil)
4. Mix all together for about one minute ( 30 seconds with your food processor)
5. Now here is the trick to making any good dressing - Begin to mix your ingredients again with your hand blender or food processor.
6. While your hand blender is blending - gradually add or another words - thin stream of grapeseed oil into your mixture. Keep mixing at high speed all the time you add the grapeseed oil.

What happens: Your Dressing will blend into a creamy dressing that is great on romaine lettuce.
Now cut your romaine lettuce into medium-cut size and of course rinse and dry - Place in your favorite salad bowl and mix in enough dressing to your taste.
Mix together
Arrange mixed salad onto your favorite salad plate ( Tip: Do not push down on the salad)
Sprinkle on Asiago Cheese. Garnish with a quarter of lemon on top and if you like add fresh cherry tomatoes to the side of the salad.

Famous last words are : Bon Appetite!
