If you like garlic you will love this sauce used mainly to dip yucca or tostones, but it taste great on anything, even simply dipping bread.


1 cup olive oil

1 head of garlic (minced in food pressor

1 tablespoon of white vinegar

juice from half of a lime

salt to taste

Place all of the ingredients in a saucepan over a low heat for for approximate 15 minutes. Do not allow the garlic to burn, heating the oil will help infuse the garlic flavor.

Use immediately or refrigerate for later use.

    I was just talking to a friend of mine about tostones. We live right near the garlic capital of the world, so this is perfect. I need this sauce in my life and I shall have it.

    Tried this and it didn’t turn out at all like the sauce I’m used to from my local puerto rican restaurant. literally tastes like olive oil…not sure. looks good in the picture though. Also, my garlic burned even on a low temp, maybe it’s my stove

      Brandon, sorry it didn’t work out like you would have liked but thank you for giving it a shot. I would suggest salting it a bit to your liking out adding a little more vinegar and lime until it matches your personal taste.
