Roasted Garlic Vinaigrette

Salad with Roasted Garlic Vinaigrette

I recently came across the concept of a roasted garlic vinaigrette and it sounded really good! It just so happened that I had some roasted garlic and I decided to make the vinaigrette. I also had some roasted garlic olive oil that I used in place of the regular olive oil. The roasted garlic vinaigrette was really tasty! I enjoyed it on salads and asparagus this week. The asparagus was some of the first of the locally grown asparagus that showed up at the farmers market for the first time on the weekend.

Ingredients:
1 head roasted garlic (mashed)
1/4 cup roasted garlic olive oil (or olive oil)
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Mix everything in a small bowl.

This sounds great. I use the same old boring vinaigrettes on all my salads. This looks like a nice one to try out and mix things up a bit. Roasted garlic is the best!

This is a very easy and delicious concept. I just discovered asparagus not long ago, but J wasn't crazy about them. I wonder if they would be better received with this roasted garlic vinaigrette. Great pictures!
