If you've never read Doryn's Dish, check it out. She dishes on tons of topics & always has good stuff on her site. Today she posted a receipe for a yummy salad dressing. I haven't tried it yet, but plan to asap. I had a delicious spinach salad recently & it prompted my craving for more greens. But I hate using dressing like Ranch b/c they are so fatty - the fat free is always nasty, I don't care what you say.
Yummy, Yummy Salad Dressing
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
2 Cloves Pressed Garlic
Salt & Pepper To Taste
Combine all ingredients, whisk and spoon over salad. (Use a spoon so that you make sure to get the bits of pressed garlic that will sink to the bottom of the bowl.)
*My question since I never cook is...do you buy pressed garlic, or do you press it yourself? If you responded "press it yourself," how does one do that?
A kitchen tool used to press a garlic clove through small holes, thereby extracting both pulp and juice. Leaving the skin on the clove facilitates cleaning, which should be done immediately after pressing, before any garlic left in the press dries. The press can also be set in a cup of warm water until cleaning time. Some presses contain teeth that push garlic fragments back out through the holes, making cleaning much easier. Garlic presses can be made of aluminum, stainless steel and strong plastics. (from epicurious.com)
