Roasted Garlic Vinaigrette

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Porfavorcorona

This recipe was easy to make & is great tasting & tangy. I make this vinaigrette any chance I get. It's great on so many things. Our favorite is tossed with lightly steamed green & wax beans & halved grape tomatoes. I have to bring it to every get-together my friends and I have.

This recipe got my attention as a true garlic lover. I placed the 6 cloves of peeled garlic in foil, drizzled with a touch of oil and placed in preheated oven for about 15 minutes. I had to substitute dried tarragon for the fresh. This made a wonderful, creamy dressing. Made for *Partying the Diabetic Way*

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  2. Slice off the top of the garlic bulb, just enough to barely expose the garlic inside each clove.
  3. Place the bulb in an ovenproof dish and drizzle with olive oil.
  4. Place the dish, uncovered, in the oven and cook the garlic until it is golden brown and soft, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Let cool.
  6. When the roasted garlic is cool enough to handle, squeeze the pulp from 6 of the cloves and mash with a mortar and pestle, or with a fork. (Store the remaining cloves in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.)
  7. Put the garlic in a food processor and add the mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper and puree.
  8. Slowly add the olive oil and stock through the feed tube, and puree until the vinaigrette is creamy.
  9. If it is too thick add a teaspoon of stock until the consistency is correct. Add the shallots and tarragon.
  10. Adjust the salt and pepper to taste.
