Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 large clove garlic, peeled and smashed
    1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    1 teaspoon honey
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
    1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Directions

In a small bowl or jar, combine the garlic, Dijon, honey, salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar. Let sit 5-10 minutes to let the flavors infuse. Slowly whisk in the extra virgin olive oil (or shake it all up in a jar). Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. (The garlic flavor will intensify as it sits; if you prefer a milder flavor you can remove the garlic clove before storing.)

    RE: GARLIC CONCERNS, this recipe contains oil AND vinegar. vinegar is a fairly strong acid that kills bacteria, the idea behind pickles, which often contain garlic.totally different than oil alone,which can be dangerous, unless mixture heated to kill bacteria like botulism. - 1/16/12

    love love!

    A while back, I started to save my glass bottles of finished salad dressings so I could begin making my own and have something pretty to put them in. Yup!

    Here in Spain, people put olive oil that has garlic in it on their toast in the morning...it is delicious. And the containers of oil with garlic sit out, as far as I know there have been no botulism incidents. They donīt put eggs in the fridge either, though. - 6/18/12

    Nice and tangy and easy and quick to make. I usually have all these ingredients on hand. Just be careful about the serving size:) - 3/25/12
