  • Whisk
  • Ovenproof skillet


  • 1 head of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • ¾ cup mayonnaise
  • 5 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • A few tablespoons water as necessary
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A few splashes of hot sauce optional, to taste


Prepare the Roasted Garlic:

  • Preheat oven to 400. Cut the top off the garlic head, keeping the cloves in tact. Heat the 1 tablespoon cooking oil in a small ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic head, cut side down, and cook without moving for about 2 minutes or until golden brown. Flip and transfer to the oven for 30 minutes or until softened. Remove from the oven and set aside.

Prepare the Dressing:

  • Carefully pop the garlic cloves out of the skin and into a blender. Add the mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, and hot sauce if using. Blend until creamy. Add water as necessary to thin out the dressing to your preference. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Serving Suggestion:

  • Roast the garlic along with vegetables such as radishes, broccolini, and mushrooms and serve over greens with a fried egg, as pictured below, for a hearty market breakfast.
