Why I Love This Recipe
I've also varied this recipe by including extra garlic, finely chopped basil, and sun dried tomato paste with great results.
Ingredients You'll Need
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 large egg yolk
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 TBSP fresh lemon juice
Mix garlic, yolk, and salt together in a mixing bowl.
Whisk in the oil, pouring in a thin stream, a little at a time.
When olive oil is completely absorbed the aioli will have the consistency of mayonnaise.
Mix in the lemon juice.
Let sit, covered, for at least an hour before serving.
