Preheat an oven to 150 C / Gas mark 2.
Cut off the top of the head of garlic to expose the cloves, trimming about 6mm off of the top of each clove. You may need to trim individual cloves along the sides of the head. Brush the cut cloves with a small amount of olive oil, then nestle the head into a piece of aluminium foil.
Bake in the preheated oven until the cloves are tender and nicely browned, about 1 hour. Remove, and allow to cool to room temperature.
Once cool, squeeze the garlic cloves out of their skins and into a mixing bowl. Mash well with a wire whisk, then add the soured cream, mayonnaise, spring onion, vinegar, salt and pepper. Whisk until evenly blended, then refrigerate 2 to 4 hours to allow the flavours to blend.
