The boiled and mashed potato has crushed garlic, olive oil drizzled and whipped though it.  Try this modern take of skordalia. Greek skordalia, is loaded with garlic, potato and olive oil, although a favourite in Greek homes can be too heavy and too hot as the skordalia contains alot of raw garlic.
