Olive oil, garlic and lemon come together in various forms across the Mediterranean region to flavor fish and vegetables. In this version from Provence, they take the form of a tongue-tingling mayonnaise that can be used as a veggie dip, spread on toasted baguette slices or served with boiled eggs.

Mediterranean-Style Garlic Aioli Recipe

• 2 garlic cloves, minced
• Pinch of salt
• 1 large egg yolk
• 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
• 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
• 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1. If you have a mortar and pestle sitting idly on a shelf, this is a great time to dust them off. If not, use a food processor. Mash or blend garlic to a paste with a pinch of salt.

2. Whisk yolk, lemon juice and mustard together in a separate bowl.

3. Gradually add oil to yolk mixture, whisking until mixture is emulsified.

4. Whisk in garlic paste and season with salt and pepper. If aïoli is too thick, whisk in 1 to 2 drops of water. Chill until ready to use.
