Romaine with Creamy Garlic Dressing

Source: Everyday Food, April 2007


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 small garlic clove, pressed through garlic press
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano (optional)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 medium heads romaine lettuce


  1. Make dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, garlic, and 2 tablespoons water. Stir in oregano, if using; season with salt and pepper.

  2. Remove dark-green outer leaves from each head of romaine, leaving just the paler-green hearts. (Reserve outer leaves for another use.) Halve hearts lengthwise. To serve, drizzle romaine with dressing.

    This dressing is so easy to make and the ingredients you're likely to already have on hand, so a special trip to the grocery store is not required. Will make this again.

    I love this dressing. Instead I used apple cider vinegar, Italian seasonings and German mustard.
