Sweet Elenas July Recipe
Skordaliar

A type of Aioli "a la grecque", item mostly eaten with fish in Greece, a white fish would be best. I also love to fill nice ripe small summer tomatoes or cherry tomatoes and serve them as appetizers.

Ingredients:
• 2 CUPS, 1 LARGE RUSSET POTATO PEELED (DICED COOKED AND MASHED)
• 1 T FINELY MINCED GARLIC
• 1t SALT
• 1 EGG YOLK
• ½ CUP OLIVE OIL
• 2T FRESH LEMON JUICE
• PEPPER TO TASTE

Directions:
• Boil the diced potatoes
• In Cuisinart mash it leaving it a bit chunky
• Add minced garlic, salt, egg yolk, olive oil lemon juice, pepper
• Mix it a little more, I like to leave it a tiny bit chunky

Keeps refrigerated up to 3 weeks.
Enjoy!

Thank you to the Monterey County Business Council for the award!
