Even though it contains Parmigiano Reggiano, this recipe is lactose-free.

Parmigiano Reggiano is lactose-free for a reason.
Lactose and galactose are not found in Parmigiano Reggiano. Its absence is a natural result of the traditional process for making Parmigiano Reggiano, as well as the long ageing process.

To ensure that the dressing coats the leaves evenly, the salad greens should be thoroughly dried. We use a salad spinner to remove excess water, then gently pat dry with paper towels or a clean dish towel.
