Nif's Creamy Garlic Salad Dressing

Total Time

I needed to come up with a salad dressing tonight and this is what I came up with! This is close to a Caesar Salad dressing, but without the egg and anchovies. It was perfect with a chopped up head of romaine. Feel free to top this with croutons and shredded parmesan. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make a garlic paste. To make the paste, place the clove on a cutting board and chop or mince. Sprinkle the salt on the garlic; it will help break down the garlic. Put your knife on the garlic at a 40 degree angle, almost completely flat. Scrape the garlic with the side of your blade until you end up with a paste.
  2. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and chill in the fridge for about an hour.

I cut this recipe in half but made as written (using a whole garlic clove). Wonderfully delicious! Served this on romaine, onions, mushrooms and radishes...delicious. Definately going into my "Favorites for 2011" and one that I will use often. Thank you. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.

This was good but it seemed so thick. I did use Hellmanns low fat mayo and a low fat sour cream. So, I added 2 tsp. of white balsamic vinegar and that seemed to help. By the time I let it sit in the refrigerator for an hour, it was pretty thick again. Didn't really bother the flavor-just needed to be careful not to put too much dressing on our salad ingredients.
