Make This Roasted Garlic Dressing at Home
Are you like me and will have an expired bottle of salad dressing sitting in the fridge for an extended period of time? More than once I’ve bought some dressing for a party or something, use less than 1/4 of the bottle then just have it hanging out in my fridge until I do a fridge cleaning haha.
After one too many bottles that have been tossed out, I started making my own dressing. It decreases the amount of waste and I get to know exactly what it is that goes into my dressing. Making homemade dressing at home also means I can control the flavour profile as well. You know that meme where the recipe says 1 garlic clove but the cartoon girl adds way more? That’s me. Enjoy this yummy roasted garlic dressing made with 3 heads of garlic!

Tips on Roasting Garlic At Home
- Be sure to peel away almost all of the loose, papery, outer layers of the head of garlic. Leave the head of the garlic intact with all the cloves still connected.
- Cut off the top of the head of garlic to so the tops of the garlic cloves are exposed.
- The easiest way to remove the roasted garlic is once it’s cooled, press on the bottom of a clove to push it out of its paper. Or if in a rush, use the back of a knife and squeeze out the entire head at once.
- Roasted garlic can also be kept in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or frozen for up to 3 months.
