I love the method to pan-cook the garlic cloves. I bought pre-peeled garlic cloves and used 18 (2 oz) of them. Also, we did not have 1/2 cup buttermilk on hand, so I used 1/4 cup milk and 1/4 cup plain yogurt instead. This is fantastic with red pepper strips and roasted tomatoes.
I made this today for my salad, with the roasted garlic I keep in my freezer. I just blended my already-roasted garlic with all of the other ingredients omitting the oil. I really cannot describe how delicious this dressing is... also, I added in a few tablespoons of Parmesan cheese, and used freshly ground black pepper... What an amazing dressing, this is.... one everyone should try!... another winner Marg! thanks for sharing...Kitten:)
