  • 1 cup store-bought mayonnaise*
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, plus more to taste
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon zest, plus more to taste
  • 1 garlic clove, finely grated
  • Kosher salt


  1. Add mayo, lemon juice, lemon zest and garlic to a medium bowl, whisking to combine. Season to taste with salt and more lemon juice and zest (I added 1/2 tablespoon more lemon juice and 1 teaspoon more lemon zest to the batch shown here). Store aioli in fridge for up to 2 weeks.
