Aioli recipe

Published June 26, 2010 6:26AM (EDT)


  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 egg yolk at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup olive oil


  1. Add the garlic, egg yolk, lemon juice and salt to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. If you do not have a blender or food processor, whisk the ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Slowly pour in the oil with the motor running and puree for about 1 minute or until the sauce thickens. Cover and refrigerate. If you are using a whisk, keep beating while very gradually adding the oil, until the aioli is thick. (This will take several minutes.)
