Garlic Herb Dressing

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Remove the outer papery covering of the garlic, but leave the covering on the individual cloves.
  3. Use a sharp knife to slice the top of the head so that most of the cloves are exposed.
  4. Place the garlic in a ramekin and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil; season with salt to taste.
  5. Cover the ramekin with aluminum foil and place the garlic in the oven.
  6. Roast the garlic for 50 to 55 minutes, until garlic is completely soft and slightly brown. Remove garlic from oven and set aside to cool, reserving the remaining olive oil.
  7. Use a knife to remove the roasted garlic cloves from the head and transfer the garlic along with as much of the reserved olive oil as you can to a high-speed blender.
  8. Add the lemon juice, 1/3 cup of the oil, hemp seeds and basil.
  9. Blend until dressing is smooth and creamy.
  10. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and drizzle on salad.


*You can roast the garlic for the vinaigrette at the same time you roast the other veggies for the salad.
