If you've never tasted aioli sauce, I highly suggest you try it out. It completely changed the way I eat burgers and fries!
What Is Aioli?
Aioli is a mayonnaise based sauce with lemon juice and garlic. Commonly used in Spanish cuisine, it pairs wonderfully with burgers, fries, vegetables, potatoes, chicken, or even sandwiches. It has minimal ingredients, is gluten and dairy-free, and comes together in less than 5 minutes. You can't beat that!
Is Aioli Gluten-Free?
While yes, aioli sauce should be naturally gluten-free, when it comes to anything processed, you always have to read labels. I use Hellman's mayonnaise for the base (homemade mayo is even better!) but have heard wonderful things about Sir Kensington's as well (both are gluten-free). When making your own soups, sauces, or dressings, double-check the ingredients. Look for "gluten-free" or even the certified gluten-free label, but always read what specific ingredients it contains too. Mislabeling and misprints can happen so it's imperative we do the extra work. Exhausting as it is, it helps keep us safe!
What You'll Need To Make Aioli
My easy gluten-free aioli uses:
-oil of your choice (I use olive oil, because I have it handy)
-minced garlic (fresh or jarred)
I would suggest adding salt to taste, because you shouldn't need much, if any at all (I don't add any!).
How To Customize Aioli
Aioli can be customized however you like - and I leave the changes up to you. If you like spice, add some chipotle chili pepper, or combine it with ketchup and relish for your own burger sauce that rivals In-N-Out, or even add fresh herbs like rosemary and thyme. This aioli is a base you can build upon to create your own flavorful sauces.
What To Serve With Gluten-Free Aioli
How To Store Aioli
Store it in the fridge covered/a sealed container. I keep mine in mason jars with a lid. It should keep for 3-4 days but is best used fresh!
