Skordalia (Greek Garlic Potato Dip)
Not only is this a fabulous dip for vegetables and breads and things like that, it's also served as a side dish for things like fried fish and grilled meats--so this stuff is as versatile as it is easy to make.
Recipe Summary test
You can make this with whatever kind of potato you want, but I highly recommend using a russet.
You can add fresh herbs to this if you like, such as parsley, chives, or dried oregano.
I prefer using a milder, fruity olive oil for this. Dip may be thinned with potato cooking water if needed, depending on the desired thickness; just reserve before draining.
