very ripe Avocado from Mexico
plain, fat-free Greek-style yogurt
fresh lemon juice
ground black pepper
I used 1tbsp of fresh cilantro instead of basil, as we both love cilantro. Used a little less garlic. Was AMAZING on fish tacos!!!
I thought this was okay. I would reduce the garlic and salt by half. Both were very overpowering. As it is so salty, I am going to use it in a wrap or sandwich with fresh grilled chicken or other toppings that don't have salt and see how that works. Only change I made was using 1 tsp. of dried basil for the 1 Tblsp. of fresh. That worked fine. However, after a day in the fridge even the basil was very dominant. I definitely consider this more of sandwich or wrap spread than a dip, though, imho, with it being a thick consistency. Still prefer just a little mashed avocado on a sandwich or a simple guacamole.
Oh. My. Word! I could have eaten the entire recipe of this aioli! What would that be......376 calories plus the mini sweet peppers? I could make a meal out on this! I had a partial bag of peppers that needed to be used (hence, a shriveled pepper here and there), and this recipe complemented them perfectly. This would make a fantastic appetizer for my next party.
I love Aioli and serve it often with pork roasts as well as beef roast and prime rib. A nice change up from horseradish. Using Avocado instead of mayonnaise is wonderful on so many levels. I am a basil lover as well as garlic so whoever thought to put the two together in this Aioli is a genius.
I made it to the recipe and it was not special. Added a tsp or so of Caravelle Sweet Chili Sauce. Awesome.now I have to make more!
This is a great recipe! It was very easy and fast to make. I didn't know what to expect with the garlic in it... but it was a perfect accent to a seasoned chicken roll stuffed with avocado! I am using it again tonight as a side for Mexican food. I wouldn't make any changes except maybe doubling the recipe!
This was my first time ever making Aioli of any kind and I really enjoyed this. I have been looking for some low carb snacks and this was perfect. I served this with some celery sticks, bell pepper strips and also sweet potato corn chips. Husband and kids liked it too. This did not last long so next time I will double the recipe.
