Yummy Honey & Baked Garlic Balsamic Dressing

Andy Anderson !


This dressing is totally addictive. There are only a few ingredients, and it’s easy/peasy to make. And the good new is, you probably have all the stuff you need just sitting in your pantry.

If you’ve never used baked garlic before in a dressing, you’ll love how it creates a deep mellow taste, so much different than using raw garlic.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
