Garlic scapes are the thin, green shoots that grow out of the garlic bulb and are in season for a short time, late spring to early summer. If you picked up some garlic scapes at your local farmer's market, this recipe is a delicious way to use them. Garlic scapes give this tasty dressing a light garlic flavor and beautiful green color. Use it on a basic green salad or a salad of avocado and Romaine, or over other fresh vegetables from the farm stand; the dressing is also wonderful drizzled over grilled fish or chicken or used as a dipping sauce for bread.
Gather the ingredients.
In a blender, combine the garlic scapes, onions, honey, mustard, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth.
With the blender on low, slowly add the olive oil until well blended.
