This Greek Garlic Sauce with Basil is easy to make and you can use it as a condiment to accompany grilled or barbecued meat or fish.

However, you can also mix it in pasta or as a salad dressing, in sandwiches, in salads, in risottos, as an appetizer or dip, or to accompany other appetizers, such as veggie patties.  

I am sure once you try it you will be thrilled and find even more ways to use it!

Greek garlic is very strong, so feel free to adjust the amount to your taste.

I have no words to describe this amazing sauce I made.  

After experimenting a few times, I think that this almost resembles store bought garlic sauce but without the additives and made with  the finest ingredients.

The best part is that it takes less than five minutes to prepare!

I’ve made this sauce using various herbs such as  parsley, dill and basil.  In my opinion the best is the one with fresh basil.

You can use it as a condiment, in sandwiches, in salads, in pasta, in risottos, as an appetizer or dip, to accompany grilled or barbecued meat or fish or with other appetizers.  I am sure once you try it you will be thrilled and find even more ways to use it!

On another note ..

As I have already informed you, my blog is nominated by BHMAGourmet for an award, in the category “Best Greek cooking in English”.

If you have not yet voted, you can still vote for my blog until the 14th of December, 2015, here.

We still have to participate in two challenges which will be judged by a committee.

One of the challenges is to make frugal recipes which are nutritious and full of flavour, so my today’s recipe falls in that category.

The other category is to make good use of our leftovers, so stay tuned and keep voting 🙂
