Very good garlic taste. I was looking for the garlic sauce that they use on shawarma which is a little thicker than this and has less lemon zing. It was too much lemon for me so I added a bit more salt to combat the zing. Next time I'm going to try it with about half the oil and less than a quarter of the lemon juice with salt to taste.

This is fantastic just like LaShish. I recomend using a blender it did not emulsify when I used the food processor. I also use canola oil instead of EVOO Read More

I was looking for a recipe that duplicated the garlic sauce from Zankou chicken. This was great! Next time I might substitute 1/2 of the olive oil with canola the sauce had a strong olive oil taste. Served with grilled chicken lamb tabouleh & pita bread. Read More

I have been looking for this garlic recipe for a while now. I love it. A little less lemon and maybe a bit more salt. I didn't use all of the olive oil either. Great with chicken lamb hummus and pita. I put it on everything. The taste of garlic will be with you for several days. Read More

I love all lebanese foods and I love anything with garlic so for me this was out of this world. This is very garlicky so you can tone it down to your taste to maybe 4 small bulbs. Like previous reviewers I cut down on the oil a bit. Read More

This sauce is great on everything: fish chicken vegetables bread. Sometimes I cooked the meats with the sauce other times I topped the meats with the sauce after cooking. It makes a great sandwich spread too. The only change I made was 2 cups EVOO instead of 3. Because I find EVOO to have a very strong taste I used 1/2 C of the dark green EVOO and 1 1/2 C light EVOO. This was a big hit with friends and guests. Read More

Although I'm giving it 4 stars it didn't turn out for me it was too runny not think like it should be- but maybe I didn't do it right I'll try it again because the flavor is good. Read More

Yowza! This is strong esp if your garlic comes in large heads as mine do! I make this in much smaller proportions becuase a little goes a long way and serve it with kofta roti and a cucumber/dill/yogurt sauce. It's so strong that it's spicy and it will leave a taste of garlic for awhile. If you love garlic you'll love this -- otherwise beware! Read More
