Skordalià (greek potatoes and garlic dip)


I said that many times: I simply love garlic. The social implications are easily solved cause the garlic day generally is Friday! Skordalià (you read it with an accent on the final A), is a easy dip made with mashed potatoes and garlic. The quantity of garlic suggested is the minimum needed to give it its flavor. If you love garlic as I do, you can double the quantities!

Serves 4

Ready in 45 mins


4 big potatoes

3 garlic cloves

4 tbs white vinegar

1 tsp salt

5 tbs extra-virgin olive oil


Boil the potatoes in salted water (it will take around 30 mins). Drain and let cool. Peel and mash them roughly with a fork.


Put the mashed potatoes in a small casserole on medium heat and let it cook for a 8/9 minutes, stirring constantly.


Add the garlic and the rest of the ingredients. Cook for 1 or 2 extra minutes. Season with extra salt if needed.


Pour in a plate and serve warm with pita bread.
