Ingredients

Roasted Garlic Blue Cheese Dressing

  • 5 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt, to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper, to taste
  • Water, as needed
  • ¼ cup crumbled blue cheese

Buttery Croutons

  • ½ brioche loaf
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Salad

  • 8 pieces bacon

  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • ¼ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives
Directions
1
Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Wrap the garlic in a tin foil packet, drizzle with olive oil, close the foil and roast until very tender and fragrant, about 20 minutes.

Transfer the garlic cloves into a blender. Add the olive oil, mayonnaise, vinegar, sour cream, salt and pepper. Blend until smooth, adding water if necessary to reach desired consistency. Fold in the blue cheese crumbles, taste and adjust seasoning.
