Aoli is a term for a flavored mayonnaise. Typically all Aolis will start with garlic and lemon and your imagination is the limit for the flavoring from there. Making an Aoli is a simple and tasty way to spruce up a sandwich or canapés. I have also used a spicy Aoli with Quesadillas that was great. I like a flavor herbaceous flavor for sandwiches so here is my recipe for Tarragon Aoli:
Mayonnaise 1 cup
Fresh Minced Garlice 1 tbl
Juice of ½ Lemon
Tarragon, Dried 1 tbl
Salt and Pepper to taste
Place all of the ingredients in your food processor and pulse to combine and chopup the garlic a bit more so the final product is nice and smooth.
Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed and you are done! You can use it right away but it's best to put it in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to allow the flavors to meld.
