Tip * If you do not have a rasp style grater, mince the garlic, then mash with the side of your knife with the salt to form a paste.

tip* take an extra three minutes to toast your cumin seeds for even more flavor. Heat seeds in a small heavy skillet over medium heat,swirling the pan often, until fragrant and starting to darken, 1 1/2 to 3 minutes. It is okay to add to the dressing hot!
