What is Aioli?

Authentic aioli is an emulsification of only oil, salt, garlic and perhaps a spritz of lemon juice and water to balance the texture.

Aioli vs Mayo

Are aioli and mayo the same? Long story short: no. Mayo contains eggs, while aioli does not. However, in the US the majority of sauces labeled “aioli” are in fact a mayo base.

Is aioli vegan?

Real aioli is vegan, but cheater’s aioli with mayo is not since it contains eggs.

Is aioli dairy free?

Yes, both authentic and cheater’s aioli are dairy free. I can’t, for the life me, understand why people think eggs are dairy. Maybe cause they are in the dairy section? But eggs are NOT dairy. They are an animal protein.

Does aioli have raw eggs?

These aioli recipes do use uncooked eggs, but most eggs these days are pasteurized. And if you are using a jarred mayo, then they have been pasteurized and are safe. How else does raw egg stay shelf stable without refrigeration?

If you are making mayo from scratch, make sure the eggs you are using specify “cauterized”.

How long is it good for?

Regardless of using cheater’s or authentic, both should be good in an airtight container in the fridge for about a week. Do not leave them out at room temperature for more than 2 hours.

Not only does it make a great dipping sauce for fries and veggies, but it also tastes great slathered on a sandwich or used as a marinade. Yes, mayo is a great flavor inducer and baster.
