When people talk about the decadence of eating something off a spoon, I doubt they had this spread in mind. But they should.
Yes, it’s just garlic (with a little olive oil and a touch of sea salt), but it’s so not just garlic.
It’s sweet, nutty, and mellow, and spreadably creamy with the consistency of room temperature butter. Slathered on fresh bread, it definitely gives butter a run for its money. (I know, that’s a bold claim…try it and see though!)
The Roasted Garlic Salad Dressing recipe is here!
It’s also amazing tossed with hot pasta, fresh spinach, shaved Parmesan cheese, and a drizzle of olive oil; spread on a turkey sandwich or wrap in place of mayo or mustard; used as a condiment for burgers, grilled steak, or pan-seared chicken; or made into salad dressing that will make you want to eat salad for every meal of every day for the rest of your life.
Or, you know, it’s also pretty perfect eaten off a spoon. :)
