  • Yield: Makes 1 1/4 cups


  • 2 large garlic bulbs
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime rind
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce


Peel outer skins from garlic bulbs, leaving cloves together. Cut off top quarter of each bulb. Place bulbs, cut side up, in center of a piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Drizzle 1 teaspoon oil over each bulb; fold foil over garlic, sealing tightly. Bake at 425° for 45 minutes or until soft. Remove from oven; cool. Remove and discard garlic clove skins. Scoop out pulp; mash and stir until smooth.

Combine roasted garlic and remaining ingredients in a small bowl; stir well. Cover and chill 2 hours.
