I first learned about aioli while living in New Zealand. Yes, that’s where my husband is from. It’s a magical place with delicious food! But ask for mayonnaise on your burger and you’ll receive a funny look. Well, at least from your kiwi husband. Aioli is a must! 

Often confused with mayonnaise, traditional aioli sauce is made with garlic, salt, and olive oil. So, keeping true to our spring produce theme, we decided to lighten things up a bit with the use of fresh herbs such as rosemary and oregano. If you’re interested in adding more seasonal herbs to your meals, take a look at this Spring Herb Guide to find the best flavor combinations for all your recipe needs. However, when it comes to this homemade aioli, the lemon-pine flavors of rosemary paired with the peppery taste of oregano are the perfect balance to even out the richness of eggs and mustard. 

As a result, we’re left with a perfectly thick and beautiful sauce perfect for all your recipe needs! If you’re looking for even more sauces and condiments, be sure to take a look at this Roasted Red Pepper Sauce, Homemade Chipotle Mayo, or these 3 Spring Pesto Sauce Recipes

How to Make this Garlic Aioli Recipe

To make this recipe, start by placing your egg yolks, mustard, and lemon juice in a food processor or blender. Blend the ingredients until creamy. 

Next, while your food processor or blender is still running, very slowly drizzle in your olive oil. You want the oil to come out as a thin stream.
