Ingredients in our Aioli recipe

The name Aioli means garlic and oil coming from Mediterranean cuisine. There is always a question behind aioli vs mayo. A traditional recipe for aioli would contain only those two ingredients; garlic and oil. However, many modern recipes use eggs as a variation which makes the aioli similar to mayonnaise.

For this cheats version of quick aioli, we are using mayo (your preferred brand, I use hellman’s or homemade mayonnaise if you have). Also adding in mustard, black pepper, salt, minced garlic and olive oil. For the mustard, I use wholegrain however dijon can be used.
