When thinking of taramasalata, you might imagine the tasteless pinkish dip sold in the supermarkets, fortunately fresh taramasalata couldn’t be further from it. It’s delicious, healthy, quick, easy and cheap to make and can be served as part of a mezze plate or enjoyed as a quick snack on its own. With a combination like that I think you’d be mad not to try making it yourself.
