Lemon Aioli

The first place I remember having Aioli and which this one is modeled after, is Bacio in Minnetonka, which is my favorite.  Ever.  For irrational reasons even I don’t understand.  This is great for dipping food into (Fried/Grilled/Hot/Cold…whatever) as well as serving as a sandwich spread.


  • Mayonnaise (Basically however much you need for dipping/spreading)
  • 1 T garlic, chopped (the pre-minced stuff is just fine, but the fresh stuff gives it a sharper taste)
  • Splash of lemon juice
  • Pinch of salt
  • Cracked pepper


  • Spoon mayonnaise into mixing bowl or ramekin (depending on how much aioli you’re making).
  • Incorporate garlic, stir.
  • Add lemon juice, stir.
  • Taste.  Add more lemon juice if necessary, watching aioli for consistency.
  • Add salt, crack pepper to taste (should be fairly visible in the mixture).
  • Chill for one hour to allow flavors to mingle.
  • Serve
