When it comes to dipping my fries, I like all the things. I will use ranch, ketchup, tartar, aioli, honey mustard. Basically, if it’s a vehicle for putting french fries in my mouth I am all about it.

Garlic Aioli is one of my favorite french fry dips. It’s creamy, garlicky with a touch of lemon. It really does pair perfectly with fries and is even great on burgers.

What is Aioli?

Aioli is traditionally an emulsion of garlic, olive oil and eggs. Basically a homemade mayo. It’s a common sauce in the Mediterranean. Particularly France, Spain and Italy. It’s used as a dip for fries, a sauce for burgers or on sandwiches.

While traditional aioli is delicious, it’s not the most practical and some people get a bit squeamish (or simply cannot have any because of medical conditions) about the idea of using raw egg yolk.  That is where this Garlic Aioli Recipe comes in handy. It’s made with store-bought mayo which makes it super easy and super quick to make.
