Garlic Dressing

March 5, 2013

I love a good salad.

The kind of salad that includes lots of protein, piles of roasted sweet bell peppers, chopped up olives, a variety of veggies, globs of guacamole and for texture, chopped and roasted nuts or seeds.

But even with all those good ingredients, if you don’t have a good dressing, the salad can be quite tasteless and rather flat.

Most of the salad dressings I consume are homemade.  Why?  Have you read the ingredients on most purchased salad dressings??  Sugar is almost always a part of the ingredients (pass on that), unhealthy industrial seed oils are ALWAYS included (no thank you) and many of them contain high fructose corn syrup (still?!).

Although I’m content enough with a basic balsamic and olive oil dressing (with some key herbs and spices of course), sometimes a salad deserves something creamy and with a bit more flavor.

This garlic dressing is magnificent.

Increase or decrease the amount of garlic to suit your taste buds, but you won’t be disappointed with the flavor.


4-6 cloves of garlic
1/2 c Braggs Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
1 c Olive oil
1/3 c water
1.5 tblsp raw, local honey
1 T Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp sea salt
freshly ground black pepper to taste

Place all ingredients in a food processor.
Blend until creamy.
