Cilantro Aïoli

This aïoli is perfect on practically anything
Cilantro Aïoli

This delicious mayonnaise recipe goes well with anything from burgers and fries to salt roasted potatoes, and even works as a perfect coleslaw dressing when thinned out. It is full of flavor without being overpowering — a great aïoli to complement your favorite foods.



  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon hot sauce
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 Teaspoon white vinegar
  • Lemon juice, to taste
  • 1 Cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • 1 Cup cilantro, chopped
  • Salt, to taste


In the bowl of a food processor, combine the egg yolks, garlic, mustard, hot sauce, and vinegar. With the motor running, slowly add the vegetable oil.

If the mixture appears too thick (similar to a mayonnaise), add 1 tablespoon of iced water at a time to thin out.

When all of the oil has been emulsified into the mayonnaise, add the cilanto and lemon juice.

Blend until almost smooth — do not blend longer that necessary to avoid your mayonnaise getting too warm.

Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Refrigerate until needed.
