Easy Basic Aioli

Jun 07, 2010 08:24PM ● Published by Erin Frisch

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard (optional)
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Combine all of the ingredients in the bowl of a small food processor or blender and process until smooth. Store covered in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight to meld the flavors.

Variations on a theme

Add your favorite fresh herbs: rosemary or sage, even mint is superb.

Add tapenade; it’s magical with lamb or turkey.

Substitute lime juice and add cilantro and chilies or wasabi; either goes great with a turkey or tuna burger.

Skip the lemon, add sun-dried tomato pesto and fresh basil; it’s divine.
