Eating Well's Sweet Garlic " Mayonnaise"

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 2 mins

From the original Eating Well magazine. This recipe is from 1990. I wanted to post it here so I don't lose it. This sauce is thick and creamy and marvelous on vegetables or meats. It also makes a tasty sandwich spread. Cook time is actually processing in a blender.


  1. Place garlic puree in a blender. With the motor running, gradually drizzle in the oil in a very fine stream.
  2. When the mixture is fully combined, add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add lemon juice and/or Dijon mustard to taste, depending on what you plan to use the sauce for.
  4. Keeps in the refrigerator for a week.

FABULOUS! Easy to make and very tasty! I used a local garlic paste and added a few minced wild garlic tips to the sauce. Eaten with grilled chicken the first time and then spread on a toastie the second time. Great recipe thanks. Made for the Aussie/Kiwi Recipe Swap #26 - merci encore. FT:-)

Oh yes! Where has this recipe been all my life???? I love "Habib's Garlic Sauce" that we get from a little place in Bankstown and I've been trying to reproduce it to no avail. This comes close. I added a little lemon and salt and that was all, and served on some marinated Turkish chicken kebabs. The leftovers will not last long!
