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!
As I have already informed you, my blog has been 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 🙂
