Garlic Scape Dressing

Garlic Scape Dressing

Stunning, regional lettuces and garlic scapes are all over today. They all taste so fresh, sweet and mineral-y. I have actually been taking out a head of leaf, romaine or boston lettuce day-to-day and consuming the entire thing. Vegetarian stereotype: I really like salad. If the ideal dressing is included and the add-ins are great, it’s a quite fantastic thing. The structure is crucial though! It resembles a veggie sundae, all of the elements need to remain in location.

Dressing is perhaps the make or break element most times. I have one versatile mixture that I utilize extremely regularly. It’s enjoyable enough that I’ll make one big batch for a week and put it on steamed veggies, salads, warm grains with avocado, sauteed greens, dip bread in it, you understand. It’s great. The gewurztraminer vinegar and agave offer it some light sweet taste, while a little bit of garlic loans pungency. We have a lot of garlic scapes in the gardens today so I subbed in 2 them for my normal garlic clove.

Garlic scapes are a little bit of a ridiculous looking veggie that regularly appear in CSA shipments around this time of year or earlier. Their green, curly shoots emerge from garlic bulbs in mid to late spring and need to be clipped off to direct the growing energy to the bulb under the soil. They taste simply great sliced and sauteed with other veggies or infiltrated a pesto. I enjoyed them in this dressing however. Moderate, green garlic taste and an actually quite, sage green colour that looks so fresh.

SERVES: makes about 1.5 cups of dressing
NOTES: I would just advise doing this with the scapes if you’re making the wearing a mixer. Otherwise, stick to a carefully minced clove of garlic. Depending upon for how long they have actually been around, garlic scapes can be rather fibrous so simply utilize the more tender parts. Likewise, I utilize grapeseed oil here since its neutral flavour does not subdue the scapes.

1/4 cup gewurztraminer vinegar
1/4 cup filtered water
1 tsp salt
ground black pepper to taste
1/2 tablespoon dijon mustard
1/2 tablespoon light agave (or honey)
2 garlic scapes, approximately sliced
3/4– 1 cup grapeseed oil (I tend to like dressing more on the acidic side so I lean to the 3/4 cup procedure)

Integrate the vinegar, water, salt and pepper in the mixer pitcher. I like to include the salt with the vinegar so that it gets a running start on liquifying. Then, include the dijon, agave and garlic scapes. Mix the contents till the scapes are basically pureed.

Put the mixer on a low speed, eliminate the leading feeding cover and gradually drizzle in the oil with the motor running till the dressing is completely integrated and velvety. Shop in the refrigerator for approximately 1 week.

      Hello Sue,

      Yes if you plant private cloves of garlic in the fall, you’ll get huge green garlic scapes in late spring! You can cut the scape off and consume it. The energy of the plant is then directed into the advancement of the garlic bulb below the soil.
