Ingredients in Kebab Shop Garlic Sauce Without Mayo (Vitlökssås)

kebab shop garlic sauce without mayo (vitlökssås) ingredients mise en place
  • Labneh — we love the thick and creamy texture of Turkish labneh yogurt cheese. It is similar to cream cheese. You can substitute thick Greek yogurt, or make a batch of Instant Pot thick and creamy yogurt and strain it very well. Keep in mind that you’ll have to plan in advance for the homemade yogurt as it takes 8 hours, but the Instant Pot does almost all of the work. It’s wonderful to have a large batch of homemade yogurt for daily recipes, including breakfasts.
  • Sour Cream — use full fat sour cream, not light or fat free. Can substitute plain yogurt or Dahi.
  • Garlic — fresh cloves, peeled and put through a garlic press or finely minced.
  • Olive Oil — preferably cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
  • Lemon Juice — freshly pressed
  • Hot Sauce — optional
  • Oregano — optional
