two heads of garlic roasted in the oven at 400 degrees for one hour
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp honey
1 tsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Roasting changes the sharp flavor of raw garlic into a sweet and delicious base for this salad dressing. When you have a flavor that is so great on its own, you don’t want to do too much to it. Just choose ingredients that compliment the flavor.
The shallots in this recipe will bring a strong flavor to this vinaigrette, but it is milder than a white, yellow or red onion. To soften the flavor further, either add more honey or add some mild mustard.
