Salad with Garlic Dressing

November 12, 2009

This garlicky dressing is very close to a Casear salad dressing.  It goes well with a lot of salad combinations but I was in the mood for sundried tomatoes so I threw them in.  Almost all of my salads include avocados because I’m totally addicted and this one is no exception.

Make the dressing at least a couple of hours ahead and make a lot because it’ll be even better over the next week.KBP_3284

  • Mayo, 1 to 1 1/2 cups
  • Garlic, 3 or 4 cloves
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Dijon Mustard, 2 or 3 tablespoons
  • Worcestershire Sauce, 1 to 2 tablespoons
  • Salt and Pepper

KBP_3290Mince the garlic.  The food processor makes the whole thing easy because you can just add everything and whirl it together.KBP_3291Add the mayo and mustard.KBP_3298The lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce.  Pulse it a couple of times, until it’s well blended.  Season to taste with salt and pepper and give it another whirl.KBP_3302Put it in a bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least a couple of hours.KBP_3664

  • Mixed Greens

  • Red Onion
  • Parmesan or Asiago Cheese

I think your obsession with avocados is so funny; I love that you stick to it! :)

Have you ever had an avocado-grapefruit-feta salad? I made one a few days ago because my avocado/grapefruit was going bad,
and I always have feta anyway, so I just tossed it together with a mustard-vinaigrette. It was delicious!
What would have made it better, I think, would have been some walnuts and arugula.
Next time! :)

Not since our grapefruit tree died but I do often add oranges or tangerines when they’re in season. I love adding fruits to salads.
