  1. Place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with lightly salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until very tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and return to the saucepan.
  2. Mash together the potatoes, garlic, vinegar and olive oil with a potato masher or a large fork. Continue mixing until all ingredients are well blended. Season with salt to taste. This sauce can be served chilled or at room temperature.

I was researching the Mediterranean Diet and was looking for some inspiration, this was a very tasty first start. I did feel it was a little bland on it's own and my husband asked what made it different than mashed potatoes? So after boiling 5 small Yukon potatoes in heavily salted water, I pureed in garlic, lemon juice, Parmesan cheese, dried oregano, and plenty of good olive oil. We enjoyed it spread on a crusty baguette slices with a nice dry red wine. I also spread leftovers on toast this morning - delish!

I tried to recreate skordalia I had at an excellent Greek restaurant in Astoria, NY, but I was sorely disappointed. None of the flavors seem to blend together to make a cohesive, good-tasting skordalia. I followed the recipe to a T.

nice and simple, thx. just like mother used to make and serve with battered cod filets. i was wondering if we could speed things up by using a good quality mash potatoes mix instead.

Yes you can use dried mashed potatoes instead, I did and it works!

Nice, tasty and easy. If you put in less garlic you can also serve it as mashed potatoes :)

I added one small, cooked and pureed beetroot to it. The blandness is gone, and it has a lovely color!
