What is Garlic Aioli Sauce?
What is Aioli? Some say it’s just fancy mayonnaise. Common in Mediterranean cuisines, it is a sauce made of garlic, salt, olive oil, and often egg. Traditional Aioli has raw egg, but a much easier way to prepare it is by just using mayonnaise! Many variations and flavors can be infused to create unique Aioli sauces. Some examples of these flavors are chipotle, sriracha, truffle, horseradish, jalapeño, pesto, rosemary, and many more!
This garlic aioli sauce has it all. My very favorite thing to dip in it is artichokes. They have the best combination together. Plus, whenever I can add in a sauce to combine with my vegetables, I do it! You can also try whipping up some frozen french fries to dip in this for a quick snack! Not only is this sauce bursting with flavor, but it is so simple to make! In no time, you will be looking for anything and everything to dip in it that you can!
