This was very good. I enjoyed the combination of the beets, potatoes, and garlic in a way that was different to me. It was a great accompaniment to a blackened halibut recipe, and since I had extra beets left over I threw them in a salad.

Oh My Goodness... this was such a great dish! But you better like garlic!!! The tangy creaminess of the skordalia is the perfect complement to the marinated roasted beets. And even though I feel like I could slay a vampire with my breath, I just can't seem to stop going back for one MORE little bite...

I didn't have to go through the fuss of the first part of the recipe as I had vacuum-packed, pre-cooked beets, so I just made the garlic sauce part (called 'skordalia') here. The skordalia was rich and creamy and VERY garlicky, as it should be. This is one of my favourite greek salads, and it was enjoyed as per usual today. :-)
