Creamy Garlic Salad Dressing
Normally, I don't record what I put into dressings as I whip them up on the spot depending on my tastes and what we're having for dinner that night. However, on this night, as I finished whipping this dressing up, and having a "taste-test" I found it to be SO good, I could have sat down and eaten the entire lot with a spoon!
Grabbing for pen and paper, I wracked my memory for exactly what I put in. I have since made it several times, including using it as an accompiament sauce for a beef shawarma I made, and it is just as good each time.
Believe me when I say you'll want to sit and eat it with a spoon, it's that good!
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 TBSP Greek (or Middle Eastern) yoghurt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)
Dash ground black pepper
Dash Sriracha Chili Sauce
Blend all ingredients together in a Magic Bullet or blender until smooth and creamy.
Serve over salad, in shawarma, or over grilled meat.
Kept in an air tight container in the fridge, this dressing can keep for approx 2 weeks... if it lasts that long.
