Garlic Aioli – Homemade Garlic Mayonnaise

Garlic Aioli is so often served in many restaurants. It is a favorite of ours because it is so wonderfully pungent and creamy. We put together this garlic Aioli and used it to dip fresh vegetables in, and as a dipping sauce for freshly grilled meat.

Creamy Garlic Mayonnaise

Garlic mayonnaise is easy to make when you use an immersion blender. You can also make it by hand with a whisk. Watch the recipe video to see how it is made by whisking the ingredients together.

It tastes so much better than anything you can buy.  Consider making your own fresh garlic aioli at home.

    How long would it last in a Airtight mason jar? Do you know?
    I can’t wait to make it.
    I too have never heard of garlic aioli. But the sound of garlic mayonnaise to be able to use it for dips sounds delicious!

    • Stephanie Manley

      I went to a French culinary school, we would use this for up to a week after making. The chefs said in France the French would make this and it could say for up to a month.

    I’d never heard of Garlic Aioli before and looked to Google for a recipe that I could include on my site to accompany a Coconut Shrimp recipe. Yours sounded the yummiest so I hope that you don’t mind that I linked to it!

    Thanks!
