This sauce is so garlicky, very flavorful yet not to overpowering. And the consistency is just as thick and creamy as mayo but without the calories of the egg yolk! No bottled sauce comes close to this homemade one. It goes so well with chicken, fish, beef, potatoes, spread on bread, it goes pretty much on anything. It is definitely worth a try.
