“A very light and flavorful dressing from the America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook. To keep this nonfat the garlic is roasted with water rather than the traditional method with oil.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Adjust an oven rack to the upper-middle position and heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut 1/2 inch off the top of each garlic head to expose the tops of the cloves.
  3. Set the garlic heads cut-side up on a small sheet of aluminum foil and sprinkle with the water and a pinch of salt. Gather the foil up around the garlic tightly to form a packet, place it directly on the oven rack and roast for 45 minutes.
  4. Carefully open the top of the foil to expose the garlic and continue to roast until the garlic is soft and golden brown, about 20 minutes longer.
  5. Allow to cool for 20 minutes and reserve any juices in the packet.
  6. Squeeze the garlic from the skins into a food processor.
  7. Add to the food processor any reserved juices, 3/4 teaspoons salt, and the remaining ingredients. Process until thick and smooth, about 1 minute.
