Soy & Roasted Garlic Dressing
Ellen Ecker Ogden
“Roasted garlic gives this Asian-inspired dressing a deep, nutty flavor. It's great on any combination of salad greens, or use it as a dipping sauce for dumplings.”
1 head garlic
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
Juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
1Preheat oven to 400°F.
2Rub excess papery skin off garlic head without separating cloves. Slice the tip off, exposing the ends of the cloves. Place the garlic head on a piece of foil, drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive 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.
3Squeeze the garlic pulp into a blender or food processor (discard the skins). Add the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil, lime juice, vinegar, ginger, sesame oil and soy sauce; blend or process until smooth. Season with pepper.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
People with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.
