Traditional Greek Recipe: Skordalia- Greek Garlic Dip
Yields: 3 cups
Prep Time: 30 minutes
One of my favorite traditional Greek recipes. I would love to share with you my families recipe.
- 1 1/2 pounds of potatoes peeled and boiled
- 7 cloves of garlic, minced
- 3/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
- 1/3 cup of good quality red vinegar
- 1 tablespoon of sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
- Add the salt to a large pot of water.
- Peel the potatoes and boil in salted water until well done. Drain the water.
- Sprinkle pepper over the potatoes, and add the garlic.
- In the blender bowl of the food processor puree the potatoes, garlic, and Greek yogurt.
- Still pureeing, slowly add the olive oil and vinegar, alternating between them, and making sure the mixture is smooth.
- Skordalia should be creamy and thick in texture.
*I included the fun poll we conducted on here for What Was Your Favorite Greek Food As A Child.
Looks like Tiropita took the win in this poll.
