Quick and easy homemade lemon garlic aioli, with a great flavor of acidic lemon. My recipe below shows makes a small batch, approx. 1 tub / 1 large cup and this can easily and quickly be done manually with only a bowl and a whisk.

But, if you want to make a larger batch, you can do so with an immersion blender or regular blender, as long as it has an opening that allows you to slowly and patiently drizzle the oil in, which is essential to mayo so that it will emulsify.

3. Slowly drizzle the olive oil into the mixture, whisking continuously. Do not add too much at a time, or the mixture may will not emulisfy. (I found it’s easier to do this by placing the bowl onto a wet paper towel on the counter top to prevent the bowl from slipping. This also frees your other hand to manage the oil drizzling.)
