So fun. ..I have never made aoli before! I served it drizzled atop some seared tuna which tasted fabulous. My only complaint is that it is never thickened up to my liking. Thanks for a fun recipe! Made for MAKE MY RECIPE.

I made this last night to as a dipping sauce for fresh vegetables. I think the most important thing is to use a good type olive oil. Next time I will not use so much olive oil, as the oil overpowered the taste a little. But overall this is a very easy and quick recipe to make, and the longer you leave the Aoli the more intense the flavours. Thanks for a quick and easy recipe Chickee.
