Garlic Scape Dressing

Garlic scapes are the curly fresh flower stalks that hard neck garlic produces.  They are available almost a full month before heads of garlic are so rather than use imported garlic, start using the scapes!

In a food processor blend together

1 hand full garlic scapes (about 1/4 cup chopped) with

the juice of one to two lemon

Once the scapes are well blended, add in 1/3 cup olive oil and blend well.

Toss with chopped Kale, Romaine, or your favourite green.  Serve over green beans, on new baby potatoes or steamed broccoli.

Variations

Sometimes I add in Parmesan cheese to the food processor

Sometimes I add in some black pepper, or use lime juice instead of lemon juice

If I am wanting this to be a caesar salad dressing, I’ll add a few anchovy fillets to the food processor
