Roasted Garlic Dressing

Rich roasted garlic makes an incomparably flavored dressing. Try this on any salad with bold-flavored greens or ingredients.

Serves 4

Prep Time 10 min

Total Time 75 min.


  • 1 large head garlic
  • 4 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoon balsamic or red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 2

Rub off the excess papery skin from garlic without separating the cloves. Slice the tips off the head (or heads), exposing the ends of the cloves. Place the garlic on a piece of foil, drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil and wrap into a package. Put in a baking dish and bake until the garlic is very soft, 40 minutes to 1 hour. Unwrap and let cool slightly.

Step 3

Squeeze the garlic pulp into a blender or food processor (discard the skins). Add the remaining 3 tablespoons oil, vinegar, lime juice, salt and pepper and blend or process until smooth.
