• 1 cup vegetable oil
• 1 cup red wine vinegar
• 2 tablespoons grated lemon rind
• 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
• 3 tablespoons sugar
• 2 tablespoons hot sauce
• 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
• 2 cloves garlic, pressed
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
Whisk oil and remaining ingredients together in a bowl. (If desired, prepare ahead by storing in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 1 week. Bring to room temperature and whisk before using.)
• 1/4 cup  fresh lemon juice
• 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
• 1 clove garlic, pressed
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
• 1/2 cup vegetable oil
Whisk together first 5 ingredients. Gradually add oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking until blended. (If desired, prepare ahead by storing in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Bring to room temperature and whisk before serving.)
• 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
Wrap the outside of an inverted terra-cotta pot or glass bowl in aluminum foil. Coat foil with vegetable cooking spray. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet. Spread parmesan cheese onto the parchment paper, patting it into a circle. (Note: Do not use grated cheese in this recipe; only shredded will work.) Bake at 375 degrees F for 5 to 7 minutes or until pale gold in color. Remove from oven and let cook 10 seconds. Carefully lift the parchment paper off the baking sheet. Work quickly, inverting the Parmesan circle over the prepared pot or bowl and gently press over the bowl to desired shape. Carefully remove the parchment from the Parmesan circle. Cool basket completely (about 5 minutes) and remove from pot or bowl. Repeat to create as many baskets as you need. You can bake these a day ahead and store them in individual zip-top plastic bags. You will need to move quickly to shape them when they come out of the oven, so make them one at a time.
