Now comes this easy garlic aioli. We just can’t get enough of it.
Little confession, this is a shortcut version. Traditional aioli involves emulsifying olive oil with eggs. We’re using mayonnaise as the base, but the end results are just as delicious.
What is Aioli
Originating in the Mediterranean, Aioli is a cold dipping sauce. The name means simply “garlic and oil”. Traditionally, it is made in a mortar and pestle.
There are different variations, depending on the region. In Spain, they insist that aioli includes no eggs, while other areas do include it.
The French often add mustard to their aioli. And some variations include lemon juice, while others don’t.
Today we are taking a shortcut. Here is what you need…
- Olive oil
- Lemon juice
How to Make Garlic Aioli
Simply mince the garlic, juice the lemon, then mix everything together. It’s that easy!
How to Use Garlic Aioli
This amazing garlic sauce is super versatile.
Dip anything and everything in it. Think…
Once you have the base recipe down, there are all sorts of ways to customize it. Make it spicy by adding in some sriracha, or any of your favorite hot sauces.
How about roasted garlic aioli? Cut the top off of an entire head of garlic, drizzle it with olive oil and wrap it with aluminum foil. Roast it in a preheated oven at 400°F for 45 minutes to an hour, till the garlic is buttery soft.
Leftovers and Storage
Refrigerate leftover garlic aioli in an airtight container, and use within 2-3 days.
We do not recommend freezing it.
