Greek garlic sauce (skordalia)


  1. 4 slices of stale bread (remove the crust and soak in cold water. Squeeze to get rid of the water.)
  2. 2 cloves garlic
  3. 1 tbsp. vinegar
  4. 2 tbsp. mayonnaise
  5. 1/2 lemon (the juice)
  6. olive oil
  7. salt & pepper

How to make Greek garlic sauce (skordalia)

Put the soaked bread, the garlic, olive oil, mayonnaise, lemon and vinegar in a small blender.
Blend to form a soft paste adding salt and pepper and olive oil until you get the right density.
Taste it from time to time to check the salt and vinegar and adjust according to your desire.

You can keep it in the fridge for 4-5 days.
It is a nice dressing for grilled or fried vegetables.
In Greece, we traditionally combine this sauce with fried cod.

The photo is of a really thick garlic sauce. I usually do it a lot thinner (like cream).

    I made this sauce for dinner this evening. I made it more creamy. It was really good. My husband likes it very much. Thank you for this great recipe!

    Actually, more creamy is the right way. I'm glad you liked it.
