Traditional aioli

  • 1.5 dl virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice can be omitted

Mayonnaise-based aioli

  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1.5 dl virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice if desired
  • 1 yolk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon mustard to prevent curdling


Traditional aioli

  • This is best made with a mortar and pestle.
  • Peel the garlic cloves and beat them in a mortar.
  • Season with salt and pepper, then crush the cloves and drizzle olive oil.
  • Work the aioli into a smooth paste.

Modern aioli

  • Separate the yolk into the bowl of a hand blender. Add the mustard and lemon juice. Peel the garlic cloves into the mixture as well and give it a couple of swirls to break down the texture.
  • Then a little olive oil, turn the blender on full power. Slowly add the remaining oil. It usually works without curdling. Season to taste at the end.
  • The mayonnaise-based garlic sauce won't keep long, but it will just get better for a couple of days in the fridge.
