A potent but delicious sauce to serve alongside your favorite bread or main meat dish. The flavor, in my opinion, is too strong to just have as a stand alone appetizer. I like to accompany the sauce with bread, some form of protein and a nice Greek wine. As Greek Independence Day soon approaches, this dip comes into mind. This is because every year, similar to Thanksgiving and cranberry sauce, skordalia (Σκορδαλιά) is sure to be on my plate.
Although there are different variations of this recipe out there — sometimes only bread or only potatoes or even adding nuts — it has a texture that I truly love. A bit grainy and full of garlic flavor, I am never disappointed when I am presented with it.
Note: Skordalia is similar to other Greek dips — healthy, refreshing and has tons of antioxidants. καλή όρεξη! If you're not in to garlic that much this dish can be a bit overwhelming, so start with 4 cloves.
