I adore beef carpaccio! It makes great appetizer for formal dinners. This is from the Kansas City Junior League cookbook, Above & Beyond Parsley. Try adding thin slices of Parmesan cheese or serve with baguette slices. The rich dressing is also wonderful when doubled and served over cold roast beef salad with some Parmesan crisps and arugula.

- 2 garlic cloves, minced
