Cuisinart original

Aioli, like mayonnaise, has its roots in France, but it has been adopted by many cuisines, most notably the Catalans of Spain. This version makes it simple by using the same base for mayonnaise, but adding a hefty amount of garlic to the mix. Traditionally, aioli is used as a dip for crudités, but it can also top burgers, fish and crab cakes.


Makes about 1 cup


2          garlic cloves, peeled (if making aioli)

2          large egg yolks

2          tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1          tablespoon Dijon-style mustard

1 to 2   pinches kosher salt

11/3       cups vegetable oil
