Creamy Garlic Dressing
 by Cyann
While at a Greek restaurant in CT, I frequently had their House Salad with homemade Creamy Garlic Dressing, when I ordered their Fish & Chip dinner... then one day, I finally asked the owner for the recipe, and he gladly shared it with me.


1 cup sour cream

1 cup mayonnaise

4-6 garlic cloves, (or more or less to taste)

1 shallots

1/4 teaspoon cider vinegar

2 tablespoons sugar, (or more or less to taste)

1/8 teaspoon sweet paprika

½ teaspoons coarsely grinded pepper

½ teaspoon sea salt

Chives (optional)


Combine all ingredients together in food processor and process till smooth. The dressing's flavor improves with age -- don't use it for at least 3 days. Yield: 2-2/3 cups.

Note: The creamy garlic dressing keeps for a month refrigerated, but I doubt it’ll last that long!

    Copied this and plan to try it but was wondering if white pepper would be a better choice all the flavor and no black flakes to catch the eye? White Balsamic vinegar

    versus cider vinegar.? Anyway this will be a worthy try. Thanks for sharing.
