This is a great recipe that I found in another user's comments but nowhere else on the site. Enjoy! We use this as a dip for crab cakes or as a spread on sandwiches.

So much easier than preparing it from scratch and with great results! Loved it, and it was perfect to accompany our crab cakes. I made no changes, nor will I next time. Read More

This was good, but I only used 2 TBSP of the lemon juice and it was STILL too much. Next time I will cut it down even more. Read More

I loved this! I used this to dip my Garlic Pita Bread Bites I made from this site and they went very well together. I will say that the resting time is needed because if you don't 'rest' your dip will taste way too much like lemon juice. If you let it sit you won't have that lip puckering lemon tang. Read More

Awesome! This was just what I was looking for to spread on steak sandwiches - I did use Hellman's light mayo, but other than that I didn't change a thing. This is fabulous on sandwiches! Read More

This recipe is amazing great for artichokes asparagus as a spread you name it! Although I never add salt and I accidently did the other night it was awful! Just too much if you have to have salt in it I would say use half the amount it calls for but it is great without it. Read More

I roasted my own garlic today so I used that in this recipe. Really, REALLY yummy. I don't think that I could turn back now and use plain mayonnaise again. NOTE: I did use low-fat mayonnaise and fresh lemon juice, not bottled. Read More

UPDATE: USED UP LEFTOVERS AS A DIP FOR PLAIN 'OL POTATO CHIPS. THIS WAS GOOD, BUT PARTICULARLY SOUR AFTER SITTING FOR A DAY. DEFINITELY USE FRESH LEMON. I ONLY USE FRESH LEMON NOW AND CAN REALLY NOTICE A DIFFERENCE. I'D ALSO LIKE TO NOTE THAT THIS SPREAD IS PERFECT FOR A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G!!! USE IT ON STEAK SANDWICHES (I SLATHERED SOME ON TERA'S PHILLY CHEESESTEAK SAMIES), CRAB CAKES, FOR DIPPING FRENCH FRIES - YOU GET THE POINT! Pretty good! Made this to "slather" on Meatball Sandwiches (BIGGUY728). A fast food join my fiance and I frequent makes a GREAT meatball sub. What makes it SOOOOOO yummy is the garlic spread on it. This was perfect for that! I was worried about using 2 1/2 T lemon juice (thought it was a typo), but went with it and am glad I did. It really perks this up! This was so good, I can't WAIT for my next excuse to whip up a batch lol. Thanks for sharing your FANTASTIC recipe, Jeff and Justine! :-) Read More

I really miss the aioli I used to get at this great Mediterranean restaurant near where I worked when I lived in Cali, but unfortunately I moved to where there is nothing for Greek food...anyway, I decided to try this recipe, and it was very similar, but I would omit the pepper, or use white pepper instead of the black, I think it overpowers other ingredients.
