DIRECTIONS

  • Cover potatoes with water in 3-quart saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer until potatoes are tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Drain, rinse with cold water and mash thoroughly.
  • Meanwhile, put garlic and salt in a large wooden bowl and mash with a pestle until a paste.
  • Gradually add potatoes and mash them with garlic.
  • If mixture is still hot, let cool 15 minutes, then add egg yolk, if using, and heartily mash in with a wooden spoon.
  • Alternating olive oil with lemon juice and vinegar, gradually add both to potato mixture, mashing.
  • Add pepper, and using a fork mix briskly until very smooth.
  • Mix in more olive oil(or even some water), a little at a time, if sauce is too thick to use as a dip.
  • Spoon into a container and store, covered, in refrigerator. It will keep for about 1 week.
  • Bring to room temperature several hours before serving.
  • Spoon into a bowl and serve with fresh vegetables and/or pita for dipping. Enjoy!
