The Best Garlic Dressing

Comment on this recipe

The dressing can be used on any variety of greens or tossed with red onion rings. Spoon on grilled fish, meats and poultry. It also makes a fine topping for grilled breads on the grill or under the broiler.

Ingredients

2 small heads garlic, separated into cloves
1/2 cup no fat, no salt chicken or vegetable stock
3 tablespoons white wine or cider vinegar
1-1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1-1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 anchovy fillets, rinsed and patted dry
Freshly ground pepper to taste

Instructions

In a small sauce pan, bring unpeeled garlic cloves and stock to a simmer over medium-low heat. Reduce heat to very low, cover and cook until cloves are tender, about 15 minutes. Remove the cloves with a slotted spoon to a plate to cool for 2 minutes, reserving the cooking liquid. Add enough water to the cooking to measure 1/4 cup. Squeeze cooled garlic pulp out of the skins into a blender or food processor. Add reserved cooking liquid, vinegar, oil, mustard and anchovies. Process or blend until smooth. Season with freshly ground pepper to taste.
