Easy Spanish Alioli

Typically, making alioli sauce involves raw egg yolk and oil blended to form a mayo-like sauce. I love to eat it, but prefer to leave out raw egg if I am making it for myself. This recipe is an easy alternative to traditional garlic-lemon* alioli.

1 cup mayonnaise
2 heads garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Salt to taste

Mix mayo, garlic and lemon juice in food processor or blender.

Serve with Spanish Tortilla, with shellfish, as a sandwich spread or however you are so inspired

*Other types of alioli can be made this way using thyme, rosemary, parsley, saffron, mustard, etc


  1. Really easy alioli to make, and I bet is very light too, as well as the additions that you stated above one must try with a little chilli powder mixed in or even very very thinly sliced red chilli (previously de-seeded and de-veined) so that is not too hot. Thanks for sharing and 4 the blog visit...luv your blog

  2. Thanks for posting this recipe for lazy women like myself! I've never attemped alioli but I just might, now. :) Fun fact- the word alioli is catalan, it comes from the combination of the words "all i oli", or "ajo y aceite" in spanish.

  3. Sounds great to me...Rico is right chili powder is all good!
