Aioli is a garlic sauce based on mayonnaise. It is very popular in Spain, France and Italy. The base of the sauce is oil, garlic, lemon juice and salt. Often, eggs or egg yolks are also added to it when making it. It’s a good idea to start preparing the sauce by finely chopping the garlic, then combining it with lemon juice, salt, egg and oil added in small rivulets. Aioli sauce is the perfect addition to roasted and grilled poultry meat, roasted vegetables and sandwiches. If you are looking for a garlic sauce recipe, I recommend the below recipe for aioli.
