Cilantro Aïoli

This aïoli is perfect on practically anything

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.
