What ingredients to use?
Yoghurt, mayonnaise, garlic, lemon and mint jelly (or mint sauce) is all you need to make a quick and easy garlic mayo sauce at home.
Pop all into a bowl and stir through adding extra garlic, lemon or mint jelly to your desired taste.
What is the difference between Mint Jelly and Mint Sauce?
Mint Jelly is sweet and gives this garlic sauce a delicious fresh twang. You can use Mint sauce instead which is basically mint in vinegar.
But you may want to use less lemon juice and add some sugar or sweetener in to the sauce to counteract the sourness.
Should I use Natural yoghurt or Greek yoghurt for Garlic Sauce?
We tend to use natural yoghurt when we make our garlic mayo, however we have used Greek yoghurt instead.
Greek Yoghurt is thicker, higher in fat and has a slightly tangier flavour.
It is personal preference which one you use.
How to make a homemade low-fat garlic sauce?
If you wanted a lower fat garlic sauce, all you need to do is substitute the full fat natural / greek yoghurt with 0% fat (or low fat) yoghurt.
The same with mayonnaise, opt for light or lighter than light mayo!
How to store homemade garlic sauce?
Store any left over sauce in a jar, or sealed container and keep in the refrigerator for upto 3 days.
Alternatively freeze for upto 3 months, allow to defrost fully before consuming.
What to drizzle garlic sauce on?
Any grilled or oven baked fish or meats taste great with a drizzle of garlic sauce on.
Also makes a great dressing to any salad
