Dijon Aioli Recipe

Dijon Aioli

Makes 1 cup / 8 (2 Tbsp) servings

Here’s a recipe for making homemade garlic mayonnaise (aioli) with a little extra zip from Dijon mustard. For a shortcut version, whisk a tablespoon or two of Dijon into a jar of Metropolitan Market Garlic Aioli (find it in the seafood department). Enjoy this creamy sauce on sandwiches, roasted veggies, and fried potatoes.


  • 1 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg yolk*, large
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup Metropolitan Market Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • * Consuming raw egg may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially if you have certain medical conditions.


  1. Mince garlic. Sprinkle with 1/2 tsp salt. Smash with the side of a knife blade and continue chopping until it forms a paste.
  2. In a small bowl, combine garlic paste with egg yolk, Dijon, and lemon juice.
  3. Slowly add olive oil—whisk constantly while slowly drizzling in the oil, start with just a drop or two at a time. It will form a creamy, cohesive emulsion, like mayonnaise.
  4. Taste and adjust for seasoning.
