    Sharon123's Note:

    This thick Greek garlic sauce makes a yummy dip to be served with vegetables, pita bread,or along with fish or chicken. Don't use a food processor or an electric mixer, which can make potatoes gluey. Adapted from Garlic, Garlic, Garlic: More than 200 Exceptional Recipes for the World's Most Indispensable Ingredient, by Linda and Fred Griffith.

      This recipe really intrigued me because I had never seen anything like this before. It was funny because we found the vinegar overpowering in the sauce when we tasted it on its own, but as a sauce or a dip for veggies, it was great! Definitely something I'd make again, and a great way to use up the last couple of potatoes. Thanks!

      I made this to have along with some fresh carrots and celery for a snack. It was really good! I liked the flavors of the lemon and did add about 3 T. Feta cheese crumbled for added flavor. Made for Newest Zaar Stars Tag Game Linda
