Roasted Garlic Vinaigrette

Try this light and flavorful dressing on salads, steamed vegetables, or as a marinade for shrimp.

This recipe serves 6


1 bulb of garlic

Splash of olive oil

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Salt to taste

Freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

4 tablespoons chicken stock

1 tablespoon minced shallots

1 teaspoon fresh tarragon

Cooking instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.

2. Slice off the top of the garlic bulb, just enough to barely expose the garlic inside each clove. Place the bulb in an ovenproof dish and drizzle with olive oil. Place the dish, uncovered, in the oven and cook the garlic until it is golden brown and soft, about 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool.

3. When the roasted garlic is cool enough to handle, squeeze the pulp from 6 of the cloves and mash with a mortar and pestle, or with a fork. (Store the remaining cloves in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.)

4. Put the garlic in a food processor and add the mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper and puree.

5. Slowly add the olive oil and stock through the feed tube, and puree until the vinaigrette is creamy. If it is too thick add a teaspoon of stock until the consistency is correct.

6. Add the shallots and tarragon. Adjust the salt and pepper to taste.
