Combine all the ingredients in a screw-top jar or dressing bottle and shake well together to mix thoroughly. Leave to stand for a few hours or overnight for the garlic flavour to develop. The oil will separate and float to the top after standing, so shake to combine before using. Top with more oil and vinegar as necessary, but always make sure that there is sufficient vinegar to cover the garlic in the bottom of the bottle.
