Skordalia (A Garlic Sauce/Condiment)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by evelynathens

Use this to accompany roasted beets, or fried salt cod, or any of the greek fritter recipes. It is a condiment and is used like a mayonnaise and/or dip.

Top Review by Geema

It was delicious, and pungent with lots of garlic, so just a dab will do ya. As recommended,I used it on roasted beets, green beans and potatoes, served with some pan sauteed cod. I didn't have any sourdough bread and just used some good hearth baked bread instead. I kept wishing I had some olive bread because I think it would be terrific used in this recipe.I think I would really like Skordalia as a dip for veggies or a spread for veggie sandwiches better than as a condiment with the meal. Wish I had some Greek wine to go with this very Greek condiment. Glad you posted this interesting recipe,Evelyn.
