Lemon Aioli

Aioli is similar to a garlic mayonnaise.  You can make it by hand in a mortar and pestal, a food processor or buy it in the store.  You can also flavor the aioli with things like lemon, saffron, or chipotle peppers.  Today I am making a simple version using mayonnaise.  For this recipe use:

1 cup of good mayonnaise

2 cloves of garlic, minced (do this to taste)

juice and zest from 1/2 a lemon

several tablespoons of chopped chives

salt and pepper to taste

Mix all of the ingredients together and check the taste.  You may want to add additional lemon juice or garlic.
