Avocado garlic aioli is a simple aioli made in the food processor with avocado, basil, mayonnaise, garlic, shallots, and lemon juice. The inspiration was loving to put avocado on my BLT. But that makes a fat sandwich. So I thought surely I can make an aioli out of avocados. I first experienced an aioli while eating fries. It was life-changing. I have always loved mayo and ketchup with my fries. But this avocado garlic aioli, my friends, is by far my favorite aioli.
I like aioli. I like aioli on fries or on sandwiches or with a spoon. But I love me some mayonnaise. If you don’t like mayonnaise, you probably don’t even think you will like aioli.
