Garlic Scape Dressing

A deliciously tangy dressing that tastes great on almost anything!


TIME: 10 minutes YIELD: 8 servings ​RECOMMENDED VARIETY: Fresh or Frozen Garlic Scapes


INGREDIENTS

  • 4–6 whole garlic scapes, coarsely chopped

  • 2 green onions/scallions, coarsely chopped

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • dash of sea salt (more to taste if desired)

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil


INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place all ingredients except the olive oil in a food processor or blender.

  2. Process/blend on medium-high until smooth.

  3. Change speed to low and slowly add the olive oil until well combined and frothy.

  4. Store in an air-tight glass container or jar and refrigerate. Keeps for up to 1 week. Shake well before serving.

VARIATIONS

  • Make it creamy: Add plain yogurt, plain plant-based yogurt, buttermilk or sour cream.

  • Make it silky: Add 1 ripe avocado or ¾ cup silken tofu. (This is our favorite variation as pictured above!)

  • Make it Green Goddessy: Add ¾ cup plain Greek yogurt or sour cream, 1½ teaspoons anchovy paste, and either 1 cup mayonnaise or a ripe avocado.

  • Make it fresh and herby: Add a handful of fresh basil, tarragon, savory or parsley.


This versatile recipe is also great on roasted potatoes or vegetables, as a fresh veggie dip, when used to flavor a cold pasta salad, as a sandwich spread, or as a light and bright sauce for steak, grilled chicken, or fish.
