From the Test Kitchen

Herb-Roasted Garlic Potato Salad:

Prepare as directed, except use coarse ground mustard in place of the yellow mustard and omit pickles. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut off the top 1/2 inch of a garlic bulb to expose ends of individual cloves. Leaving garlic bulb whole, remove any loose, papery outer layers. Place in a custard cup. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Roast, covered, about 25 minutes or until garlic feels soft when squeezed; cool. Squeeze cloves from bulb into a small bowl, mash with a fork, and stir into dressing. Stir 1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives, parsley, or tarragon into dressing.
