How to Make Simple Aioli

Step-by-Step

  • 1With a mortar and pestle, pound garlic and a good pinch of salt into a smooth paste. With the pestle or a whisk, beat the egg yolks into the garlic until mixture is thick and pale yellow.
  • 2Add the olive oil a few drops at a time and whisk continuously. (you can put in blender and blend as you slowly drizzle in the olive oil).
    The flow or oil can be increased to a fine stream as sauce emulsifies. Whisk in all the oil.
  • 3Add lemon juice a teaspoon at a time to thin, if desired. Season to taste with salt. Simple, but great on my -Flavorful Challah Bread recipe when making sandwiches of your choice.
