This is a versatile topping for just about anything. The flavors are bright and tangy. I have used this recipe for coleslaw dressing, topped turkey burgers, fish tacos with red cabbage garnish, and even as a dip for other Mexican-inspired dishes.

I made this for my fish tacos. My husband won't eat fish without tartar sauce and the first thing he said was "forget the tartar sauce! I want this from now on." Now I am making it again tonight for baked cod. Great recipe. Thanks for posting. Read More

I didn't have any limes on hand so instead I used two tablespoons of lime juice. Also, I didn't have cilantro on hand but I did have cilantro paste, I used a little less than 1/3 cup of that stuff. The aioli came out tangy and delish. Read More

Great recipe drizzled it over crock pot pork shoulder and it was delicious. Didn't have coriander or dill but it was good without it. Used half fat free Greek yogurt and half olive oil mayo to cut down on the fat. Read More
