Garlic Dip

Definitely for garlic lovers! I was at a Mediterranean restaurant and had this wonderful garlic dip! I came home and researched recipes on line. I combined a few and came up with this.
Slice half an onion thin (I use a mandolin.), 4-6 garlic cloves; sauté in olive oil. Then blend them in the Cuisinart with some mayonnaise (maybe 3 TBs), and juice from one lime or lemon. Now this is strange: boil a potato until it is almost done. I added half a potato to this mix. I was reluctant to try the whole potato. Too much potato and your have mashed potatoes, not dip! Add 2 healthy TBs of low fat sour cream. The dip is divine. I used it as a dip for chips and then later put it as a side for my rice.
