Ingredients
Prep: 10 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes
  • 1 large head
    garlic, or 2 small heads
  • 4 tablespoons
    extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons
    balsamic, or red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablepoon
    lime juice

    freshly ground pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Rub off the excess papery skin from garlic without separating the cloves. Slice the tips off the head (or heads), exposing the ends of the cloves. Place the garlic on a piece of foil, drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil and wrap into a package. Put in a baking dish and bake until the garlic is very soft, 40 minutes to 1 hour. Unwrap and let cool slightly.
  3. Squeeze the garlic pulp into a blender or food processor (discard the skins). Add the remaining 3 tablespoons oil, vinegar, lime juice, salt and pepper and blend or process until smooth.
