Roasted Garlic and Peanut Vinaigrette

Roasted Garlic and Peanut Vinaigrette

This is a light vinaigrette with some interesting flavor tones from the roasted garlic and peanut butter. Salads with this dressing are especially good with a sprinkle of peanuts on top.

Makes about 1 1/4 cups.


  • 1 small head garlic
  • 1/2 c olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp distilled white vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tsp prepared mustard
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper


  1. Cut the top of the garlic head off. Bundle in tin foil, and roast for 45 minutes at 400 degrees F. Cool enough to handle. Squeeze cloves of garlic into a medium bowl and mash them until smooth.
  2. Add remaining ingredients to the bowl and beat with a whisk until well-incorporated. Drizzle over salad and serve with a sprinkling of peanuts or sunflower seeds.
