How to Make Aioli

With just five ingredients and a blender, you can prepare Aioli, a delicious sauce-like spread you can serve atop grilled meat, vegetables, soups or French bread.

Aioli Recipe


  • 2 large garlic cloves
  • Pinch of coarse salt
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • About 1/2 cup mild olive oil
  1. Cut the garlic into a few pieces, and add them to a blender container. Add the salt, egg yolk, and lemon juice. Cover and blend about 5 seconds or until the mixture is combined.
  2. With the blender running, gradually add the olive oil in a thin, steady stream. (When necessary, stop the machine and use a rubber scraper to scrape down the sides of the blender container.) Place the mixture in a covered container and refrigerate until ready to use. Serve the aioli over grilled meat, poultry, vegetables, cold chicken, fish, boiled potatoes, soups, corn on the cob, or French bread. Store the aioli for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.

  • Hot-and-Spicy Aioli: Add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of crushed red hot pepper flakes to the mixture before blending.
  • Chive Aioli: Add 2 tablespoons of chopped chives to the mixture before blending.
Note: Raw eggs should not be used in food prepared for pregnant women, young children, or anyone whose immune system is compromised.
