"Heavenly spread for meat, fish, sandwiches, and burgers. They serve this at my favorite Middle Eastern restaurant. Finally got the recipe! This is heaven as a dip with pita bread, but everyone in your party has to have some. Serious garlic!"

  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.



Wow! POTATOES! Who knew? Thank you SO MUCH! This DEFINITELY made me stop going to the local restaurant where they ration how much garlic sauce you get with your pita bread! This definitely is B...

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!
