This salad dressing is fantastic! And did you know that roasting garlic makes your house smell insanely good....even at 0730? haha....my poor family. :)
So, if your salad needs a kick in the pants, or if you're just looking for something a little different, try this dressing (and bring a mint) ;)
Roasted Garlic Salad DressingWhat's In It:
2 heads of garlic
1/2 c extra virgin olive oil
1/4 c apple cider vinegar
2 T lemon juice
1/2 t salt
1 t pepper
1 T honey
What To Do With It:
Roast the garlic* and allow to cool. Once cool, remove garlic from it's skin. Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
Refrigerate until needed.
*I had never roasted garlic before, I was always scared. Me, scared....of garlic? Right, well now it sounds silly, but it seemed fancy to me and therefore made me nervous. I shouldn't have been, it was so easy! I did it two ways and both seemed to work fine for this purpose, so do what'ch'ya feel. :)
Version 2: Cut off top of garlic with a knife, brush the top with olive oil, and place in a pan. Bake at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes. Allow to cool and remove garlic from skin. I had more trouble squeezing this one, so I peeled away the skin. I felt this way did dry the garlic out a bit more, so if you're planning on using it as a spread, I'd go with version 1.
