Oh. My. Word! I could have eaten the entire recipe of this aioli! What would that be......376 calories plus the mini sweet peppers? I could make a meal out on this! I had a partial bag of peppers that needed to be used (hence, a shriveled pepper here and there), and this recipe complemented them perfectly. This would make a fantastic appetizer for my next party.

I thought this was okay. I would reduce the garlic and salt by half. Both were very overpowering. As it is so salty I am going to use it in a wrap or sandwich with fresh grilled chicken or other toppings that don't have salt and see how that works. Only change I made was using 1 tsp. of dried basil for the 1 Tblsp. of fresh. That worked fine. However after a day in the fridge even the basil was very dominant. I definitely consider this more of sandwich or wrap spread than a dip though imho with it being a thick consistency. Still prefer just a little mashed avocado on a sandwich or a simple guacamole.

I used 1tbsp of fresh cilantro instead of basil as we both love cilantro. Used a little less garlic. Was AMAZING on fish tacos!!! Read More

So... easy to make. Didn't measure the garlic carefully so a little strong. Will know to use less the next time. Will be making it again. Great to use on a sandwich as a dip over a salad on a baked potato or with mashers. or with other cooked vegetables. Read More

I love Aioli and serve it often with pork roasts as well as beef roast and prime rib. A nice change up from horseradish. Using Avocado instead of mayonnaise is wonderful on so many levels. I am a basil lover as well as garlic so whoever thought to put the two together in this Aioli is a genius. Read More

Any leftovers? Cover with water and refrigerate to stop it going brown. When ready to use pour off water and stir! Read More

Usually do not like avacado. But this recipe is good and can see myself using it in place of mayo for sandwich spread. Read More
