Vinaigrette Salad Dressing
Place the garlic cloves into a small saucepan and add enough water
(about ½ cup) to cover them.
Bring water to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until garlic is tender, about 15 minutes.
Reduce the liquid to 2 tablespoons and increase the heat for 3 minutes.
Pour the contents into a small sieve over a glass or stainless steel bowl, and with a wooden spoon, mash the garlic through the sieve into the bowl.
Whisk the vinegar into the garlic mixture; then incorporate the oil and seasonings, and mix thoroughly.
Let stand for 30 minutes to let the flavors meld. Give the dressing a good whisk immediately before serving.
