Day 30: Garlic Aioli

Today I thought I would prepare some garlic Aioli, which is basically garlic mayonnaise.  It is very versatile.  You can use it on sandwiches, with fish and it tastes great with yam fries.  It has a bit of a kick from the garlic and mustard while the lemon juice adds a fresh, lightness to the sauce. It definitely puts the store bought kind to shame.

2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 tsp salt
2 large egg yolks
1 T fresh lemon juice
1 T old style seeded mustard, medium
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

1) In a food processor add all ingredients except the olive oil and mix until incorporated.
2) Slowly add olive oil to the rest of the ingredients as the food processor is on high setting.  Make sure you don't add too much olive oil at once.
3) Aioli should be kept covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
