Aïoli # Garlic Mayonnaise

Aïoli
Garlic Mayonnaise

 1/2 Tbsp coarsely chopped garlic
 1 tsp salt
 3 egg yolks, at room temperature
 1 cup olive oil  
 1/2 cup safflower oil
 Lemon juice
 

Sprinkle salt over garlic on a cutting board and mince to a paste. In a small bowl, whisk yolks together; blend well. Begin adding olive oil to eggs, drop by drop, whisking constantly. When thick and smooth, add oil faster, still whisking. Whisk in safflower oil, then add the garlic paste. Season to taste with lemon juice, adding more salt if desired. Goes very well with seafood, grilled chicken, and roast lamb. Also delicious on bread, sandwiches and with cold vegetables. Makes about 1 cup.
