“Spaniards are convinced that everything tastes better with allioli, the potent garlic mayonnaise that enlivens dozens of dishes, from paellas to shellfish to fritters to boiled potatoes. I love it as an artichoke dip! Note: Cooking time is time spent standing.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stir together both oils in a measuring cup with a spout. Place the garlic, egg yolks and lemon juice in a blender and pulse until a coarse paste forms. With the motor running, add the oil in a slow, thin, steady stream. The mixture will be the consistency of a thick mayonnaise.
  2. Scrape the allioli into a bowl and season with salt to taste, add more lemon juice, if desired. Let stand for at least 1 hour before serving, or cover and refrigerate if keeping longer.
  3. If the allioli seems too thick, thin it out with a little water before using. Makes just over 1 cup.
