The Real Aioli Flavored with Tarragon Recipe Video
Many of you have never had real “aioli.” Oh, you’ve probably had garlic flavored mayonnaise-based sauces and dips many times. But today we’re talking about “real” aioli. Modern aioli comes to us from the south of France and is commonly used as a dip for vegetables, potatoes, as well as fish and meats. It’s more ancient origin is probably the Italian “Aglio Olio” which simple means “garlic oil.”
|Fresh tarragon||1 Tablespoon|
|Fresh lemon juice||2 Teaspoon|
|Mayo||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
For recipe directions, please refer to the video.
Editors ReviewMost of us have tasted the garlic flavored mayonnaise-based sauce and dip called aioli, served in fast food restaurants but few of us may have tasted the “real” aioli. The classic Italian “Aglio Olio” which simple means “garlic oil” is what chef John demonstrates in this video. He uses the primitive way, using a mortar and pestle to crush the garlic which gives real aioli its amazingly sharp and intense flavor. This real aioli is so strong and powerful that you don’t need half a cup of mayo on your grilled

Well, I'm one who doesn't like garlic - a lot - especially roasted garlic, but this recipe is way too good not to try. I think most non-garlic lovers will find this a welcome flavorful additon to many things and if you like Garlic a lot, well, it's a no brainer.
