That's gonna need a little salt, even if it's pink Himalayan. ;) Sounds good though.

Hey, a post I can get behind!

Spread the garlic on a slice of crusty toasted bread, dribble with a little olive oil, and as country boy said, perhaps a dusting of salt. Add a glass of red, and you're set! :thumbs:

I used to have a restaurant near me that placed roasted garlic & bread on the table au gratis, as they sat their guests.
