Ingredients (Serves 4-6)

For the Skordalia:

  • 4 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 6-8 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup Rallis Olive Oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

For Garnish:

  • Fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • Extra Rallis Olive Oil for drizzling


  1. Boil the Potatoes
  • Place the potato chunks in a large pot, cover them with cold water, and add a pinch of salt.
  • Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are fork-tender.
  1. Prepare the Garlic
  • While the potatoes are cooking, mince the garlic cloves finely. You can use a garlic press for a smoother consistency.
  1. Drain and Mash
  • Drain the cooked potatoes thoroughly and transfer them to a large mixing bowl.
  • Mash the potatoes while they're still hot. A potato masher or fork works well for this.
  1. Incorporate the Garlic and Olive Oil
  • Add the minced garlic to the mashed potatoes.
  • Slowly drizzle in the Rallis Olive Oil while continuously mixing. This will create a creamy emulsion.
  1. Balance with Vinegar
  • Stir in 2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar. Taste and adjust the acidity by adding more vinegar if needed. Skordalia should have a pleasant tang.
  1. Season and Chill
  • Season the Skordalia with salt and freshly ground black pepper according to your taste.
  • Cover the bowl and refrigerate the Skordalia for at least an hour to allow the flavors to meld.
  1. Serve
  • When ready to serve, transfer the Skordalia to a serving dish.
  • Garnish with a generous drizzle of Rallis Olive Oil and finely chopped fresh parsley.
