Blue Olive Dips and Sauces
Hummus is Middle Eastern (Arabic) dip is made of chick peas, garlic, lemon juice, salt and sesame paste (tahini). On the menu, we also have different varieties of hummus and we can make any hummus flavor you want!
The second most popular dip in the Middle East, Baba Ganouj, is made of roasted eggplant, garlic, lemon juice, sesame paste and other spices
Tzatziki (also a sauce) aka Grecian Dip
Greek dip is gaining popularity in America but sill not as popular as Hummus and most likely will never be. Tzatziki is made of either yogurt or sour cream with garlic, herbs and cucumbers. Our Tzatziki is made of sour cream. It tastes and holds better than yogurt.
Another Middle Eastern favorite! A true Mezza is not complete without labneh. Labneh is simply strained yogurt and is usually topped with olive oil. Because of the it’s thickness and creaminess, labneh is a popular sandwich (or wrap) among Middle Eastern kids and adults – like peanut butter!
Tzatziki (see above)
We use Tzatziki in most of our wraps as well as a side for the gyro plates.
Garlic Sauce (Touma)
Touma is a Lebanese garlic sauce with an intense flavor that’s just perfect for grilled meats, chicken shawarma. falafel and roasted veggies. Not easy to make but when it’s done right, it’s simply awesome! Our garlic sauce is flavored with either jalapenos or chili peppers
Chili Hot Sauce AKA Shattah
An original Blue Olive recipe! Made of fresh and dried chili peppers, jalapenos, roasted red peppers, and all other natural ingredients. No preservatives and additives! Perfected over the years and became our customer's favorite. It’s spicy but not crazy spicy! Try it!
Tahini Sauce AKA Falafel Sauce
Tahini is a condiment made from toasted ground hulled sesame seeds. Tahini is served as a dip on its own or as a major component of hummus, baba ghanoush, and halva (Middle Eastern sweet) and also as a spread for falafel sandwiches. Tahini sauce is made of sesame paste, lemon juice, water and salt.
All Purpose White Dipping Sauce
Another Blue Olive original! For those who don’t like the intense flavor of the garlic sauce and for those who can’t consume Tzatziki (because it’s dairy based), we came up with the White Sauce! It’s a light refreshing dairy-free sauce that you can use on meats, rice, and veggies. It’s garlic based but you can’t even taste the garlic! Main ingredients are canola oil, lemon juice, garlic, eggs, and vinegar. It has all natural ingredients and Middle Eastern spices.
