What is aioli sauce?
Aioli is a sauce popular in Mediterranean cuisine. It’s made of garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, and egg yolk, which makes it sneakily similar to a garlic mayo. It is the most popular in Spain, France and Italy.
This is also why you can make aiolis like this easy Sriracha Aioli at home. Just use a store bought mayonnaise.
