Arthur Bovino


Here's another Greek dip that's really easy to make — a thick, garlicky, citrus potato dip. Pair Skordalia with melitzanosalata, tzatziki, and pita chips, and you may not get to a second course.

  • 2 russet potatoes, cut in 1-inch chunks
  • Salt
  • 8 cloves of garlic
  • ¾ cup blanched, sliced almonds
  • Pepper
  • Juice of 1 lemon


Boil the potatoes in salted water. When they're soft, drain them. While they dry, pulse garlic, almonds, salt, and pepper in a food processor until it turns into a paste. Push the potatos through a potato ricer, mix in the paste, and stir with lemon juice and pepper. Adjust seasoning and eat with pita chips.
