At first glance, the amount of garlic in this recipe may seem a little alarming, but the technique of simmering the garlic in wine tempers its bite. Toss this full-bodied dressing with romaine lettuce, add crisp croutons and enjoy a healthful alternative to Caesar salad.
- 1 head garlic, cloves separated and peeled
- 1/3 cup dry white wine
- 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
- Combine garlic and wine in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until the garlic cloves are tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer the garlic and cooking liquid to a blender or food processor. Add vinegar, broth, oil and mustard; process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
