Fresh Mozzarella Salad (w/Salt-Infused Garlic)

Salted garlic + olive oil + fresh motz

Some folks think there’s something magical about our Italian dressing at the deli. Well, it’s true that food can often taste better when someone else makes it. But still, why is that homemade New Deli Italian dressing so dang good?!

I think part of it is that the garlic and herbs are mixed together with the salt first. The garlic absorbs some of the salt, and the saltiness dissipates into the dressing. The salt seems to be a vehicle to carry the flavors along. Sounds kind of mystical! But, try it- it’s sooo delicious!
