Orie’s Green Garlic Dressing

Green garlic is a spring delicacy.  We harvest immature garlic bulbs before individual cloves form and the result is something that looks an awfully lot like a green onion or scallion, but it has fresh, mild garlic flavor.  One whiff and you’ll know – it’s not an onion.

This salad dressing really brightens up all of our colorful spring salads.  It’s a wonderful change from a traditional vinaigrette and it’s not too heavy like ranch or thousand island.  It uses miso paste, which has a trove of health benefits (read a few things about it here or do a quick google search) and a zingy, salty flavor.

In addition to using this as a salad dressing, it’s also delicious served as a dip for raw veggies – just add a little less water so it ends up having a thicker consistency.

  • 1/2 c. sesame oil
  • 1/2 c. water
