"This is a nice traditional Greek garlic spread. It goes well with fish as a sidedish or with pita bread as snack."

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 ...

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.

Delicious! My husband, an authentic Greek cook, found this recipe a success! Thank you for sharing.

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 sk...

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