    A Very Lemony Sauce that I thought was great on a salad. If you like lemons you will like this sauce. I cut this recipe down to serve 8. I used a 1/4 cup of lemon juice, 3/4 cup of olive oil, 1 minced garlic, a pinch of oregano, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder and 1/4 tsp. of dried parsley.  -  03 May 2013


    Very good garlic taste. I was looking for the garlic sauce that they use on shawarma which is a little thicker than this and has less lemon zing. It was too much lemon for me, so I added a bit more salt to combat the zing. Next time I'm going to try it with about half the oil and less than a quarter of the lemon juice, with salt to taste.  -  01 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is fantastic, just like LaShish. I recomend using a blender, it did not emulsify when I used the food processor. I also use canola oil instead of EVOO  -  27 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
