Roasted Garlic Vinaigrette

Roasted Garlic Vinaigrette 3
I made an amazing salad last night (you can find it here) and I needed the perfect dressing to go with it. I have to admit, I am normally a bottled salad dressing kind of girl but lately I have been making my own and it’s crazy how easy it is.

Not only that, but it’s much healthier because you control exactly what goes in it which means no weird, funky processed junk that nobody can pronounce. And it’s cheaper too. 

Easy. Healthy. Cheap. Win win win.

I was very intrigued when I came across this recipe and knew it had to be made pretty much immediately. When I saw that it called for 3 whole roasted garlic bulbs, I knew it would be ridiculously delicious and garlicky. It lent a sweet, almost buttery flavor to the dressing and helped mellow out the zinginess of the vinegar.Roasted Garlic Vinaigrette 1

This dressing will definitely be a staple in our refrigerator from here on out.
