Recipe by Abby Girl

This dressing also works well as a marinade for pork tenderloin or chicken. Everything can be made up ahead of time for last minute assembling.

I used this dressing for Recipe #159781 and it was delicious. I just put all the ingedients in the food processor and blended it until it was fairly smooth. It is a thick dressing, but it thins out perfectly when it hits pasta (or lettuce). The flavor was wonderful and I enjoyed using the roasted garlic for a pleasant change. I'm looking forward to using it as a marinade because I think it would be wonderful. Thanks so much!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Using a knife, slice off 1/4 to 1/2 inch from the top of unpeeled garlic head to expose cloves. Place garlic in a small dish and drizzle with 1/2 tsp oil. Cover with foil, then bake in oven until garlic feels soft when pressed, 25 - 35 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. The recipe only calls for 5 - 6 cloves. Use the rest for other dishes.
  3. Mash 6 cloves with a fork. Stir in oregano, salt and pepper. Whisk in remaining oil, vinegar and enough water for a dressing consistency. Stir in sun-dried tomatoes. Taste and add additional salt if needed.
  4. In a large bowl, toss lettuce with tomatoes and cucmber. Toss with dressing. Add olives and cheese and toss again.
