  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and transfer to a bowl; mash until smooth. Set aside to cool.
  2. Put garlic, salt, and lemon juice in a blender or food processor; pour in enough olive oil to lightly coat garlic cloves. Blend mixture on high; slowly stream remaining olive oil through the top opening of the blender or food processor until mixture is smooth. Add mashed potatoes, about 2 to 3 tablespoons at a time, to the garlic mixture while blender is still running. Continue adding potatoes until all are incorporated. Transfer sauce to a bowl and refrigerate until chilled, 1 hour to overnight.

The garlic sauce was wonderful! Made chicken shawarmas for dinner and they were a hit! The potato ingredient was brilliant! Will use this recipe regularly in the future! Thank you!

Delicious! Used a bit more garlic, lemon, and salt than the recipe.

If you want garlic flavor, this is the way to do it. So much flavor and the potato is a great thickening agent! Great with our chicken souvlaki dinner.
