Skordo means garlic. This is a dip we serve with deep fried cod (Bakaliaros) which is the dish almost everyone eats tomorrow-March 25th. Otherwise known as OHI day, commemorating the day Greece said NO to the Italians who wanted to enter Greek terrority-thereby starting Greece's participation in World War 2.

How to Make Greek Skordalia

Step-by-Step

  • 1I used day old bread (not sliced sandwich bread) which I submerged in water for a while. The krust comes off very easily, then I squeezed most of the water out of the bread. . In this recipe you can use lemon juice or vinegar, whichever you prefer.
  • 2First, put the walnuts in the blender so that they become finely chopped. Add the bread, crushed garlic, a good pinch of salt and about two tablepoons of lemon juice. Turn on the blender and gradually add the oil. Blend until it forms a slightly thick mix.
  • 3Taste it frequently, you may want more salt or lemon.Bear in mind that the garlic flavor will intensify while it is chilling in the fridge.I made mine today and we're having it tomorrow with the fish.
  • 4This is the first time I made it myself, my mother-in-law usually makes it, but we make it every year on Mar 25th, everyone loves it!!
