Routh Street Vinaigrette

2-1/2 cups

This excellent vinaigrette is from Stephen Pyles Cookbook The New Texas Cuisine. This was a staple at the Routh Street Cafe in Dallas. It is a good for everyday salads and is wonderful when used on other recipes.
2 1/2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar 2 1/2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 cup extra virgin olive oil 1 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. fresh cilantro, minced 1 tsp. fresh thyme, minced
1/2 tsp. fresh sage, minced 1 tsp. fresh basil, minced
1/2 tsp. cumin, ground 2 tsp. honey mustard
1 1/2 Tbsp. roasted garlic, pureed 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
The roasted garlic makes quite a difference in this recipe. You can buy garlic that is already roasted at Central Market, or you can roast a whole clove in the oven. Add all ingredients except the oil and blend throughly. Slowly whisk in the oil.
