Grab the gum because your next potato or roasted veggie side needs this easy lemon garlic aioli. Takes 5 minutes to prepare and will be gone in about 5 seconds. Mayo, lemon, pepper and of course lots of garlic blended up for the best dipping sauce.
One thing that I do to elevate just about any dish is to add a homemade sauce. I take time to prepare everything from scratch and a homemade sauce just sends a meal over the edge.
This garlic aioli is a staple in our house and at my husbands fire station. It’s so easy to prepare and is a great compliment to any potato or roasted veggie dish.
How to Make Lemon Garlic Aioli
Always use fresh, from the peel garlic and freshly squeezed lemons if you can. This will ensure you will get the best flavor.
Lemon concentrate is full of artificial flavors and additives and just doesn’t measure up to a real lemon.
Allow to Chill
Allow this lemon garlic aioli to chill for at least two hours in the refirgerator to allow all those flavors to come together.
After it has a chance to sit and chill taste and add more garlic, salt or pepper as needed.
This sauce will last 3-4 days in the refrigerator in an air tight container.
1 cup Mayonnaise
6-8 Cloves of fresh garlic – pressed
Juice from one Lemon, about 2 tablespoons
1 1/2 tsp Ground Pepper
1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
Take the time to press your garlic or mince super fine.
Juice your lemon. I prefer to use a citrus juicer. It catches the seeds and the liquid falls into a container that makes it easy to pour and measure out what I need.
Mix it all together in a bowl and your done!
Chill for 2 hours to allow all the flavors to come together. Adjust salt, pepper or garlic to your desired taste.
Takes only about five minutes to come together and goes great with a potato or veggie side dish.
