Creamy garlic dressing is so delicious! 

Garlic is a remarkable taste developer that not only tantalizes the tastes buds and adds a succulent taste to your dish, but also, it has countless health benefits to nurture your body. And since chopping and peeling garlic is so much easier with our innovative garlic shaker, why not replenish your body and tantalize those taste buds with the goodness of garlic?

Today, we are going to share with you some truly delicious and creamy garlic dressings that you can place on the table and add more taste to the food. Now, when it comes to garnishing and dressing, how can one ever miss out on garlic? Garlic dressing is the one thing that can really make those juicy bites melt on your tongue, be it a cheese burger or a beef steak. We need garlic to spice it up and bring out an aromatic flavor.

Now, can you name a single person who does not like a fresh salad, Greek or Romanian, with a creamy and scrumptiously aromatic garlic dressing? No? I thought so, because there cannot be a single person who can say no to the goodness of garlic, and garlic dressing is indeed the best way to give your body and quick and healthy fix. It not only nourishes and strengthens you up within, but it is a natural ingredient for all the traditional and quick fix recipes in the world. The truth is, food is quite bland without garlic, and if you want to bring alive the taste, you definitely need to add some.

The recipes we will share today will be an excellent addition to your habit of eating salads and all the exciting BBQ evenings where you love to cook burgers and steaks for your folks.

So, let’s get this garlic madness started, shall we?

Creamy mayo and garlic dressing

This one is by far the easiest garlic dressing recipe that you will ever find. It’s very simple, and ideal for those days when you’re expecting guests but you’re too tired to fix lunch, and all you want to do is toss around a few vegies, and boil them to fix a salad.

Well, a few more minutes in the kitchen and you can fix yourself this creamy and rich garlic dressing to go along with your salad. Creamy garlic delight ready in an instant, isn’t that just fabulous?

Here are the ingredients that you will be needing:

  • ¼ Cup of water
  • 3 minced garlic cloves (you can add more if you like your garlic strong)
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • 2tbsp. minced onions
  • 1 ½ cups of sour cream
  • ½ cup of mayonnaise (make sure you don’t add salad dressing instead of plain mayo)
  • 3-4 tbsp. sugar
  • Salt to taste
  • Ground black pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Now that we know all the ingredients needed for this succulent treat, let’s take a look at what needs to be done so that you can enjoy a delicious bowl of salad for lunch.
  • Take a small saucepan and add in the water, vinegar and then, bring in the onions and garlic. Let these simmer over low heat for 5 minutes, and then, check to see if the onions are tender.
  • If the onions are tender, it’s time to add in the sugar, and let the mixture simmer until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Now it’s time for you to take the mixture off the stove, and let it cool off to room temperature.
  • Once the mixture is cool, take out the mayo and add it in. Then, you need to add in the sour cream, along with the pepper and salt. Stir the mixture nicely to make sure everything settles in.
  • Now that you’re done adding in all the ingredients, it’s time to place the dressing in the refrigerator. It is ideal that you let it cool for at least 2 hours, and it is ideal that you let it stay in there until it’s time to devour this treat.

When you’ll take it out, the dressing will be thick, pasty and creamy. All set to be mixed into the vegies and prepare a salad that will fill up your guests just enough that they can control their hunger until the main course is served!

...Cheesy Garlic dressing for a delicious Romaine Salad

All those health nuts out there, now here is a treat that you’ll fall in love with. We all want to add more vegies to our diet, and when it comes to eating salads, it doesn’t have to be a punishment. C’mon, salads are delicious, but only if we work on making them taste good.

Now a romaine lettuce salad is just what you need to delight those taste buds and keep up your health regime. And when you add this cheesy garlic dressing all over your romaine salad, your mouth will water incontrollable as you gobble up bite after bite. It is really that delicious!

Let’s take a look at the ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp. buttermilk
  • ¼ cup reserved roasted garlic puree
  • 1 ½tbsp. lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp. finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • ¼ tbsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. finely ground black pepper

Directions:

The special thing about this dressing is the cheese that tantalizes your taste buds every time you take a bite, so if you’re dying to dig into this one, let’s get started.

You need a bowl to mix in the mayonnaise with cheese and buttermilk. Use a rubber spatula to mix in the contents, as you add ¼ cup of garlic puree, and the lemon juice. Stir it in nicely until the mixture is firm and set.

Then you need to work on the seasoning with the salt and pepper. Once you’re done, place the dressing in the refrigerator. Now this dressing, even though it doesn’t take much time to prepare, requires 24 hours in the refrigerator for it to settle in and thicken.

So, you need it to prepare it a night before you want to serve it, it is not a quick fix. But trust me, the wait will be worth it, because the next day when you’ll take it out, the mixture will be so thick and creamy, not to forget, oh so delicious that you’ll be licking your fingers as you mix it in your salad!

Low fat garlic dressing for the health conscious!

Taking care of one’s health is a great habit, but making healthy food choices is not easy. One gets tempted by all sorts of foods and dishes, and when creamy garlic dressing is placed on the table, it gets kind of hard to stop yourself from reaching out for the bowl, doesn’t it?

Well, we are going to present to you a remarkable low fat alternative to enjoy your favorite creamy garlic dressing without suffering from pangs of guilt for betraying your health. If you’re suffering from gluten sensitivity, or celiac disease, this recipe is just what you need to satisfy your deprived taste buds. It contains low fat mayo and low fat buttermilk to lower down the carbs, and hints of parmesan cheese to delight your taste buds.

This is a perfect low carb dressing recipe that won’t interfere with your fitness regime and will work as a delicious topping for a fresh vegetable salad, pasta or even, baked potatoes. It’s thick and creamy just the way you like it, except it is carb less and will help you with your fitness goals!

Let’s check out the ingredients that you need:

  • 1 ½ tbsp. lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
  • ½ cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp. gluten free low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1-2 cloves of finely minced garlic
  • ¼ cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp. finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • Ground pepper to taste

Directions:

This is by far the easiest garlic dressing you can possibly make. Even though it’s low fat, there is no extra preparation time or hassle. All you have to do is toss everything, literally, into the blender and blend it for 5 minutes.

Let me walk you through it in detail. So, you take out your blender and begin adding the ingredients. First comes the buttermilk, to which you add light mayonnaise, lemon juice and the parmesan. Then, bring in the soy sauce, garlic, salt and pepper and give this mixture a ferocious blend until everything is smooth inside.

Once you’re done blending and the mixture looks smooth and creamy, which should ideally take you 5-10 minutes, take it out in an air-tight container and cover it up nicely. Now, it’s time to place the dressing in the refrigerator and let it cool overnight. When you’ll take it out in the morning, the dressing will be so thick and creamy, all the more delicious to be served with a scrumptious lunch of mashed potatoes, or steak even.

Succulently creamy garlic dressing fit for a steak!

Are steaks on the menu for tonight? Well, you need this succulently creamy and mouth-watering garlic dressing to dribble on top off your steak and make every bite all the more delicious.

Let’s admit it, we all love steaks. And when they’re dripping in the rich and creamy goodness of garlic, our taste buds just hit the wall don’t they? Well, here’s a treat that you can prepare for dinner tonight, unlike most of the recipes I have shared here, this one doesn’t need to be chilled overnight, just let it cool for a couple hours and it is ready to be devoured.

Its delightful aroma will bring out the taste of your finely done steak and give your taste buds a tantalizing delight.

Here are the necessary ingredients:

  • 1 cup light mayonnaise
  • ¾ tbsp. lemon juice
  • ¾ tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. mustard seed
  • 1 tsp. monosodium glutamate (MSG)
  • 2 cups light sour cream
  • 1 tsp. steak sauce
  • 2 tbsp. finely minced garlic (or more if you are feeling dangerous!)
  • ¾ tbsp. white wine

Directions:

Take a medium sized bowl and take out the light mayonnaise, along with the light sour cream. Whisk them nicely with a rubber spatula, and add in the lemon juice, steak sauce and garlic.

Give the mixture a nice stir until the contents settle in, and then add in the vegetable oil, monosodium glutamate and mustard oil. Now keep whisking the mixture until it forms a nicely smooth and creamy paste.

It’s time to place the dressing in the refrigerator, and take it out when you’re ready to place the steak on the dinner table. It needs to be chilled well to give it a thick creaminess. You’ll love it!

The Real Garlic Deal!

This dressing is not just another recipe that you’ll find over the internet, it is in fact, the real deal. It is a secret recipe, one that walks down generations and generations in a family, and is enjoyed with steak, and during all the cozy and joyful dinners you will share with friends and family. A warm fire, a hearty, well done steak, and this deliciously creamy garlic dressing dribbling off each bite as they slide into your mouth.

This recipe is so good that even vegetarians would want to dig in and indulge their taste buds. Serve it with steak, potatoes, pasta-anything! It will bring out the taste in any dish you pair it with. Trust me, if you have a thing for garlic, this recipe is going to go a long way in your culinary journey.

The ingredients you need are as follows:

  • ½ tsp. (or more!) finely minced garlic
  • 2 ounces red wine vinegar (you can also use white vinegar)
  • 1 large egg (white only)
  • ½ tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 2/3 cups salad oil (any plain cooking oil will also work just fine)
  • Dried parsley (to bring out the color)
  • Salt to taste
  • Ground pepper to taste

Directions:

Take out a small bowl and a hand whip, and begin beating the egg. Beat it nicely until it seems to be turning foamy and frothy. Let it turn slightly hard to make the dressing creamier and thicker.

Now, as you beat the egg, pour in the salad oil and continue beating until you see the mixture taking a light white color that resembles that of mayonnaise. It’s time to add in the vinegar, garlic and dry mustard, and then, whisk the mixture gently until you feel all the contents have settled in.

Cover the bowl nicely, and place it in the refrigerator without wasting any time. Take it out when it’s nicely chilled and garnish it with salt and pepper to your taste. Or let it be, and place the salt and pepper on the table for your guests to garnish it to their own taste.

Do you want to know the best part? You can refrigerate this drop dead delicious garlic delight for over a week because the vinegar won’t let the eggs spoil. So, isn’t this the perfect recipe to store in the fridge, and indulge in the goodness of garlic as your fancy strikes. Sometimes with a pasta, other times on a steak, or a nice green salad. Oh, such joy!

Don't stop there! Jazz up your salads too...

This creamy garlic dressing is just what you need to put some life and taste into your otherwise bland and pretty much tasteless lunch. We get it, you want to stay fit and healthy, but hey, you don’t have to punish yourself on a daily basis.

Give yourself a break, and try out this creamy garlic dressing. It’s thick and creamy, and yet it’s very light. And the ingredients added to it are very simple and low carb, an attempt to make this the perfect salad pair up for a delicious and healthy lunch.

Everything we add into this is low-fat, so this is a great recipe for someone who not only loves salads, is a vegetarian, but also, anyone who is trying to lose a few pounds, or struggling with gluten-related allergies.

Take a look at the ingredients:

  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 1/3 cup low-fat milk
  • ½ cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 8 ounces low-fat sour cream
  • 2 finely chopped green onions
  • 1/8 tsp. ground pepper
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 finely minced garlic cloves

Directions:

Take out a small bowl, and pour in the sour cream, followed by mayonnaise, milk and sugar. Whisk these in gently with a rubber spatula until you see the mixture setting in to form a nice and smooth paste.

Now, stir in the garlic and the onions, and continue whisking until you see the mixture settling in. Now, garnish the dressing with salt and pepper, and cover it nicely before you place it in the refrigerator.

This can very well be your ideal dressing recipe when you want to prepare a nice salad without waiting too long. All it takes is an hour to get chilled, and all thick and creamy, just the way you like it.

This recipe is perfect to serve two people, but if you’ve got guests over, you should increase the quantity of the ingredients.

Let’s do this Chicago-Style!

And why not? If you love to dig your taste buds in a creamy garlic delight that is not the least bit tangy, hey, this is the one

This is another drop dead delicious recipe that even Google won’t be able to give out so easily. This too is a tradition that comes with a subtle Italian touch, and makes for a divinely delicious steak or pasta dinner to be rejoiced over fun banter and hearty laughter.

You absolutely need to try this one out, it is an utter delight. Pour it over your green vegetable salad, mashed potatoes or a nicely done beef steak. And it gives off a delicious aroma with each bite that enters your watering mouth, and leaves you yearning for another bite just as soon.

Yes, it is literally that good. Quite possibly the best of all the others I have told so far, and that is essentially why I kept this one for the last. It is the best and creamiest garlic dressing recipe ever!

Here are the ingredients you need:

  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • Lemon juice (freshly squeezed 1 lemon)
  • 2 tsp. finely minced garlic
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 tsp. sweet and low (sugar will work just fine too)
  • ¼ tsp. dried Italian seasoning

Directions:

Take out a medium sized bowl and a rubber spatula. Now, take out the mayonnaise into the bowl using the spatula and whisk in the lemon juice and sour cream. Whisk the mixture gently until it forms a smooth creamy paste.

Then, add it the garlic, and sugar, and continue whisking the mixture for at least 3-4 minutes. When you see it forming a nice and creamy texture, garnish it with Italian seasoning.

Cover it up nicely, and let it cool off in the refrigerator. This dressing takes several hours to blend in and form that smooth, creamy consistency, so I suggest you keep it refrigerated overnight just to play safe.

This is a deliciously succulent treat that all your guests are going to love. Serve it with mashed potatoes or salad as a starter, or better yet, serve it with the steaks or pasta to really invigorate the taste buds. This dressing is a huge winner, and it will be highly appreciated at your table.
