You’d think it’s easy for a garlic lover to come up with this, but it took me a long, long time to perfect my garlic sauce (hangs head in shame). But all was well again after I found this magic combo. I’ve been preparing it like this for several years now, so it’s definitely a tried and true recipe. The men in my life—all three of them—mutually agree this garlic sauce is the most incredible thing in the world. Men are so easy to please, it’s pathetic!
Hamburgers, kabobs, crusty bread, grilled chicken, literally anything goes with this sauce. I make my garlic sauce with a special ingredient, though. One that makes it a tad fresher and lighter.
Do feel free to share your families favorite sauce recipe as well. It doesn’t have to be a garlic sauce, but it would sure be fun to get one thread with lots of sauce recipes to fall back on during BBQ season, wouldn’ t it!
6 tbsp mayonnaise
3 tbsp Greek yogurt
1/8 tsp curry powder
fresh lemon juice
1 large garlic clove
drop of oil
Dump 6 slightly heaping tbsp mayonnaise—I’ve used a low fat mayo—in a bowl.
Here’s my secret ingredient; Greek yogurt. Take my word for it; it does amazing things to the sauce. It richens it, makes it fresher and almost lighter. It just works. You can use a low fat Greek yogurt for this as well. Add 3 heaping tbsp.
I’m so addicted to the mayonnaise/yogurt combination.
Grate 2 medium or one large garlic clove and stir it in.
Add 1/8 to 1/4 tsp curry powder, lotsa black pepper, a touch of onion powder and salt to taste.
Squeeze in some fresh lemon juice, a tiny drop of olive oil and a few drops Tabasco. Stir to combine and check the seasoning.
And last but definitely not least, to get some crispy greens as well as a mild onion flavor in there, finely chop some chives. When I don’t have chives on hand, I’ll add some dried parsley and a little extra onion powder. Works great, too.
This sauce is seriously addictive. But I’m prone to addiction anyway. Food-wise that is, mind you, I’m not that Dutch. Let me know what you think of it when you decide to give it a try, okay!
