  • 10 clove Garlic
  • 17 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 5 1/3 tbsp Marukan Rice Vinegar Sodium Free Sugar Free
  • 10 leaves Basil
  • 1 oz Parmesan Cheese (Grated)
  • 0 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Xylitol


Roasted garlic emulsifies this creamy dressing, keeping it from separating into oil and vinegar. Roasting tames the garlic's pungency resulting in a paste that's actually sweet. If you have a ceramic garlic roaster, use it instead of aluminum foil. Each serving is 2 tablespoons.

Note: 17 tablespoons of olive oil is equivalent to 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon.

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Trim the top 1/4 inch off the garlic bulb to expose the cloves. Place on a large square of aluminum foil, drizzle the top with one tablespoon of the olive oil and close tightly to form a packet. Bake until garlic is very soft, about 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool at room temperature for about 25 minutes.
  2. Place vinegar, basil and grated Parmesan in food processor and pulse until very finely ground.
  3. Separate garlic into cloves. Squeeze roasted garlic out of skins into food processor and add 1 cup of olive oil, xylitol, salt and pepper. Process until smooth, 2 or 3 minutes. Refrigerate in a squeeze bottle or closed container for up to a week.
