I agree with another reviewer, roasting the garlic makes it mellow. I could not imagine eating this raw. This is way too much salt and way too much oil. Cut back the salt to taste or perhaps a teaspoon, drizzle the oil over the cloves just enough so that the blender does not stall. I also use the small baby food blender cups, and make this in batches so the salt and oil is very limited; sometimes I add a tablespoon of lemon juice to the mix rather than more oil. I have been roasting garlic for about 10 years now and love it. I use it on baked potatoes, hot pasta, mixed with a little butter to make garlic toast or brushed on brushetta before adding the topping. It is wonderful on sandwiches in place of butter or mayo. I have been known to add 1/2 a teaspoon of red chili flakes before pureeing the cloves. Please, try roasting it first, you will really like it and it's versatility!
