In Greek cuisine, you'll notice that dips are referred to as a salad. This salad contains a most unusual main ingredient. Capers are not my favorite but as my husband loves them I thought I would try this unusual dip/spread. I'm glad I did cause we all loved it.
This recipe is a specialty from one of the Cyclades islands Syros. Made in a different variation on other Cyclades islands like Tinos & Kythnos, most islands are bare & dry and capers grow.
Try to find the smallest capers possible. Believe me, there is a big difference. That's my hubby's plate:) with caper dip on a cracker.

How to Make .Greek Caper Dip/Spread "Kaparosalata"

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel & boil the potatoes for about 20 minutes and set aside to cool. Place in a bowl and mash with a fork. Add the chopped capers, the garlic, the onion, the olive oil, pepper, vinegar, and pinch of salt. Mix well.
  2. I find it easier to put half the amount in my food processor and then add the other half to be sure it's mixed well/
  3. Serve as a meze, appetizer dip with toasted garlic bread or crackers, or as a spread for grilled fish or chicken.
    KALI OREXI: ENJOY!
  4. Last night we had "Meze" night. My hubby enjoyed his caper dip on a cracker.
