Makes about 1 cup (serving size: 1 tablespoon)

Notes: If you're concerned about salmonella or bacteria in raw eggs, use pasteurized whole eggs (available through some grocery stores). Or make our egg-safe quick aioli (recipe follows), which is based on purchased mayonnaise. If using a pungent, peppery extra-virgin olive oil, start with 1/3 to 1/2 cup, then add a milder oil to make 1 cup total. You can store the aioli airtight in the refrigerator up to 1 week. PREP TIME: About 10 minutes.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a blender or food processor, whirl egg, lemon juice, garlic to taste, and 1/4 teaspoon salt until well blended.

Step 2

With machine running, gradually add olive oil in a thin, steady stream until all is incorporated. Add more salt to taste.

Step 3

Quick Aioli: Omit the egg and oil, and use 1 cup purchased mayonnaise instead. Whirl mayonnaise with lemon juice, garlic, and salt until smooth. Makes about 1 cup.

Recipe good. No need for other posters to be so snippy about pasteurized eggs. It's not exactly a commonly known process. The website tell you how to peel a tomato so why couldn't it tell you how to pasteurize eggs.
