This is another great way to eat raw garlic—and you usually eat it on salad greens, which are good for you, too. For extra flavor, drizzle the vinaigrette over any steamed vegetables, potatoes, pasta and grain salads.
Add minced garlic to your favorite vinaigrette mixture, no matter what vinegar, citrus and oil you use. Lemon juice works well, and you can use apple cider, white wine, rice wine or ume plum vinegar in place of the lemon juice, or try a combination of lemon juice and vinegar.
If you want some sweetness in the vinaigrette, add the honey. I make this in rather small batches because the garlic flavor dulls if the vinaigrette is held over for more than a few days. A tablespoon of fresh minced herbs can be added if desired—basil, chervil, dill, fennel, parsley and tarragon are all good choices.
