They’re back!! A few years ago, this garlic fiend fell in love with garlic scapes (seriously, how did I live 40 years without them?) Called garlic scapes, green garlic or garlic shoots, they have a short season but are worth seeking out as they are more mild than garlic and taste oh so very fresh.
Traditional Green Goddess Dressing features garlic, parsley, chives, tarragon, has a mayonnaise base and uses anchovies for extra flavor. I used yogurt and avocado (it’s green after all) for the creamy base and only left out the little fishies because my pantry was bare (will add them in next time because they do give amazing flavor as our recent Recipe ReDux challenge highlighted.)
Want another scape hit? Here’s Serena’s recipe for Grilled Cheddar, Bacon & Pear with Green Garlic Pesto – heaven.
Are you a garlic fan? Or prefer it in small doses?
