Garlic Aioli Dressing
This recipe is definitely worth the effort and lasts in the fridge for several weeks. I use my electric mixer so I can keep my hands free to add ingredients at the correct speed. Use a mild flavoured olive oil so as not to over-power the flavour of the aioli. This way you can add your own choice of flavours.
Recipe type: Dressing/Sauce
Cuisine: Low Carb
  • 4 Egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp Whole grain mustard
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp of Lemon juice or cider vinegar
  • 1 and ¼ cups of Olive oil (mild flavoured)
  1. Place 4 egg yolks, 1 tbsp whole grain mustard and salt and pepper, in a mixing bowl and whisk until thick and creamy. Add 1 tbsp of lemon juice or cider vinegar. Now add 1 and ¼ cups of olive oil, very slowly. Keep the mixer running and slowly drizzle oil in, let mixture absorb oil before adding more.
When you have added all of the oil, add your choice of the following flavours:
• 1 tsp crushed garlic
• 1 tsp grated ginger
• Kaffir lime leaf (I crush and leave in the aioli for the flavour to soak in).
• Paprika or chilli flakes
• Extra mustard to taste
• Lime Juice
• Chopped parsley, coriander, mint ( best added to small amount of aioli before serving)
