Preparation --5 minutes

The easiest way to prepare an aioli dipping sauce, is by using a stand mixer or handmixer. You can of course also use a large bowl and a whisk, the technique is similar to making mayonnaise

Peel and cut the garlic cloves as fine as you can, or use a garlic press. We don't own a garlic press, because we don't like to have mushy garlic and it's a lot faster to use a knife instead.

But of course, that's everyone's own choice.

Making aioli dipping sauce -- 5 minutes

Add garlic, lemon juice and egg yolks into the bowl of your stand mixer until it's well combined. Now slowly drizzle the olive oil into the bowl and you'll notice the sauce will become thicker.

The egg yolks and oil are used as a thickening agent in this recipe. Season with pepper and salt. When you think it's not thick enough, add a little bit of extra oil. But be careful, the sauce shouldn't taste too 'oily'.

Goes great for dipping in plain bread, potatoes, veggies and even great with a lot of main course dishes such as fish or mussels.
