Lightly simmer your onion and garlic just to take the bite out of it.
This is very good as a dressing for a regular salad but I decided to make a pasta salad with it.
This makes enough that you can use it both ways.
I diced some fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and diced bacon.
This makes about 2 cups.
I tossed some rigatoni with the cheese mix and placed it on some romaine lettuce. Then I sprinkled it with some blueberries and currants I had just picked in my garden. I am using a lot of my currants in salads. I made some small garlic toasts to go with it.
