Aioli (Garlic Mayonnaise)

This is so easy, delicious and healing. It is fabulous with artichokes, but it is also good with boiled eggs and a variety of vegetables.


2 fresh egg yolks
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2-3 cloves fresh garlic (peeled)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 scant cup olive oil


Place egg yolks, lemon juice, garlic and sea salt into the bowl of a food processor. Blend until garlic is chopped. With motor running, begin adding olive oil in a very thin stream. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides of your bowl from time to time. Continue adding olive oil until all has been incorporated. Refrigerate or use immediately. It will keep for about a week in the refrigerator.


  1. Thanks for posting this Teri. I would just like to see this last a week in the fridge (without being eaten of course)!

  2. Yummy! I make my own mayonnaise, and adding a teaspoon of whey keeps it fresh a lot longer than one week. I bet it would work here, too.

  3. Oh it's been so long since I made this, I used to be totally hooked on home made garlic mayo. I think it's time to revisit my old addiction. Thanks for reminding me (and saving me form having to dig out the recipe)! I have a grain-free blog myself if you'd like to check it out and say hi!

    Take care,

  4. Good tip on the whey. I'll have to try it next time. And the roasted garlic--yum!

    Khrystyna, nice blog. You can post a link to it on our Facebook page, if you like. I'll try to get a link up here soon. I love your vintage dresses too!

  5. Ladies,
    I've put up a SCD for the Holidays page for everyone to put links to holiday recipes. I hope this will help everyone find plenty of SCD recipes, especially those who are new to the diet. If you want to add any links of your great recipes:

  6. Hi Sierra and Teri,

    This recipe sounds great! Any way to work in more fresh garlic is a great idea in my book. Is it possible to make this without using a food processor or blender?

    Also we are trying to reach out to people who are on the SCD and connect, if your interested please send me an email at SCDlifestyle at gmail dot com. I would love to learn more about you 2! take care - love the recipes!
