Aioli - Easy Olive Oil Garlic Sauce

About: Hello, my name is Auroris. Every day we have the opportunity to learn new things, to rethink tired processes, and to improve the way we work.

Hi, friends!

Today I would like to share with you how to make a Mediterranean sauce Aioli or Allioli. It's a wonderful accompaniment for fish or shellfish, a dip for fries or cooked vegetables like artichokes, asparagus, carrots, etc... but no matter what you pair it with, this sauce is the star.

Let's start!
