I have been eating a lot of salads and am trying to think of new ideas for dressings and one thing that popped into my mind was maybe infusing some avocado oil with some garlic and/or herbs such as chives but am unsure how to go about it. I read that drying the herbs out first a best does that include the garlic? And would I be able to use a jar or dried chives instead? Or is there another combo I am not thinking of? Any advice would be great

I had a google and there are some blogs etc with instructions.
I have had garlic infused avocado oil which is good.
From what I gather you use dried herbs and sun to infuse.
Chives would be nice. Maybe basil? Depending on type of salad rosemary might be nice (roast veg salad).

I usually sautéed garlic in olive oil to make garlic oil ( or I've done prawn oil with prawn heads - great for paella !) just don't put it in high heat or it will burn, just thin slice and heat on medium heat , then a very low simmer for about 10 mins then let it cool in the pan for a few hours before straining and putting in your jar - I don't use avocado oil so not sure if it will work the same as olive oil ?

Thank you!! Now I kind of have a general idea on what to do. After googling it was clear as mud but that could also have been my tired eyes reading it. I will put some chives out in the sun to dry and sauté some garlic and make the oil tonight
