The Magic Sauce

Our diet is based mostly on olive oil and wild herbs in the south western area of Turkey, more so in Bodrum where we live. There are even jokes to keep people from Bodrum away from your garden, because we eat any green that would be edible, that includes nettles, chards, spinach, wild asparagus etc, etc. But the most important addition to these greens is our magic sauce. This magic sauce turns every vegetable dish to something delicious and surprisingly every flavour is kept even the souce would be the same but every dish made with different herbs totaly tastes different. So here goes the magic souce recipe !

Ingredients ;
1/2 Cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 Cup early harvest olive oil
6 cloves of Garlic
salt and black pepper to taste

Crush the garlic into the lemon juice with a garlic press and whip about 5 minutes throughly, than add olive oil slowly like making mayonaise than add salt and pepper. Try to use this sauce on luke warm vegetables it makes a difference if you pour it over cold vegetables. Simple as that ! Bon Apetite
