Looking for a Spanish Tapas, Garlic Spread recipe

Years ago, when I was living in Salamanca Spain, I use to visit a local bar that served the best Tapas. They had one that was a small skewer of roasted pork served with a slice of bread. On top of the bread they had a spread that was bright green & very garlicky. We would "dip" our pork pieces into it & it was wonderful. The spread would melt so I'm thinking it was some kind of butter spread. That's about all I can tell you about it but I'm hoping someone knows what it might be.

It doesn't look like garlic lemon sauce. It's more solid, like a cold garlic butter & it's green like the color of Pesto but I'm 99% sure there's no Basil in it.

Hi I have a Spanish recipe that's called green mayonnaise- its served with meats, fish, cold meats and fish. I hope it helps

3 cloves garlic
Salt
1 egg
1/2 lemon
250ml/8fl oz sunflower oil or other flavourless oil
1/2 bunch parsley leaves
Few drops green food colouring

First in a mortar and pestle grind the parsley leaves to form somewhat like a paste. Leave aside and make the mayonnaise

Crush garlic with a little salt. Add the egg and lemon juice and whisk lightly.

Then whisking constantly slowly add the oil in a thin and steady stream. This will cause an emulsion and it will become mayonnaise.

The grab the parsley and mix into it one spoon of the mayonnaise, the add this parsley mixture to the rest of the mayonnaise. Stir in a few drops of green food colouring. Taste and adjust salt. Refrigerate till needed.
