Mother's Garlic Salad Dressing

Okay, here's the promised recipe, for all you salivating friends out there!
Salad Dressing:
1 cup mayonnaise (We prefer Kraft Real Mayo. You could make your own!)
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon lemon juice (not from a bottle, if you can)
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese (fresh grated if possible)
Blend well with a spoon, and keep refrigerated in a closed jar.

This is best made a day before, and allowed to sit in the frig, for the flavors to blend and the garlic to mellow. The original recipe calls for this dressing to be used in a salad of the following: 1 head lettuce, 1 head Romaine, 1 cup buttered bread crumbs or crushed garlic rounds, and 1/2 head cauliflower, grated. Toss dressing in greens, and sprinkle crumbs on top. I've never tasted the full salad before, but it sounds nice. However, this dressing is worth keeping in your frig at all times, and of course it lasts as well as mayo does.
