From simple infusions like truffle aioli, lemon-dill aioli, and spicy sriracha aioli, these aioli recipes deliver a massive flavor punch!
The fact that they’re super quick and easy to make is just a plus.
Basic aioli consists of garlic, olive oil, salt, and an egg. As it is, it’s already downright magical.
But, today, we’ve decided to take things up a notch and give you even more spectacular aiolis!
These unique aioli recipes pack rich flavors and are a great way to compliment any tasty dish.
Whether you want a new dipping sauce for French fries or a great way to jazz up a burger at a BBQ, check out these fantastic aioli recipes!
1. Cheater’s Aioli (Garlic Aioli)
It’s called cheater’s aioli because it skips the egg and replaces it with mayonnaise.
Swapping in mayo provides the same creamy and tangy texture as a raw egg if you’re a little reluctant to eat a raw egg in classic aioli recipes.
It’s light, creamy, and insanely garlicky with a touch of acidity from lemon juice. It’s a great way to introduce your family to this classic sauce, sans the eggs.
2. Cilantro Aioli
Give taco Tuesday an elevated punch of flavors with cilantro aioli. It’s creamy, packed with fresh flavors from cilantro, and gives sour cream a run for its money.
It swaps raw eggs for mayonnaise and earns a light acidic kick from lime juice.
Adding pureed fresh cilantro lends a beautiful green color and tons of herbal flavor.
3. Sweet Bell Pepper Aioli
Sweet red or yellow bell peppers provide subtly sweet flavors to this aioli recipe.
Cook your bell peppers until tender, and blend them with simple ingredients such as mayo and garlic. It’s so simple!
It’s the ultimate way to jazz up grilled hamburgers with a slightly sweet kick and also goes great with french fries or seafood.
4. Roasted Red Pepper Aioli
Roasting red peppers before throwing them into your aioli sauce provides sweet and slightly smokey flavors for a summer BBQ.
Adding sundried tomatoes offers additional sweetness to this blend and tons of bright orange coloring, while mustard provides a kick of heat.
Keep this take on classic aioli handy to throw on a burger or even stir into soup for a summery flavor explosion.
5. Vegan Aioli
Making vegan aioli is so simple and tastes just like the real thing. Swap out eggs for aquafaba (you know, that odd liquid found in cans of chickpeas) and puree until light and fluffy.
It incorporates plenty of pureed garlic, lemon juice for an acidic kick, and olive oil.
What’s great about this recipe is that it comes together in minutes, and no animal byproducts are required!
6. Truffle Aioli
My favorite local restaurant serves truffle aioli with their french fries, and I was immediately hooked.
Black truffle oil infuses rich, earthy flavors that pair well with root vegetables (looking at you, french fries!).
It earns a creamy kick from mayonnaise and bright acidic notes from lemon juice.
7. Chipotle Aioli
Are you on the hunt for a spicy kick? Chipotle aioli omits garlic entirely and replaces it with spicy chipotle chiles in adobo sauce.
It also includes classic Mexican flavors from fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice to marry those rich and spicy flavors together.
Ditch the bottled hot sauce and bust out this addictive Chipolte aioli on taco night!
8. Herb Lemon Aioli
This herb lemon aioli is your new secret recipe to bust out at your next summer BBQ.
Infused with tons of fresh summery herbs lifted by a generous squeeze of lemon juice, it goes great with just about anything.
Slather it on a smokey burger, or serve with fresh veggies as an herbal dipping sauce. It’s even a great way to jazz up bland grilled chicken without a ton of added calories.
9. Roasted Garlic Aioli
Classic aioli uses pureed garlic, but what happens if you roast your garlic before adding it to your aioli?
Raw garlic is fantastic, but it’s incredibly potent and slightly spicy. Roasting garlic tames the flavors and offers nutty and slightly sweet notes.
This roasted garlic aioli is a great way to indulge on garlic without burning down cities with your potent garlic breath!
10. Cosmo Cranberry Aioli
I know, I know – cranberry aioli? While it sounds a little strange, it’s surprisingly addictive.
Think of this aioli as an elevated take on cranberry sauce. The purpose of cranberry sauce is to lift all of those heavy flavors on the Thanksgiving Day table, and this tart and acidic aioli work similarly.
Pair it with leftover turkey for a black Friday sandwich, or slather it on a smokey grilled burger for a burst of tart flavors.
11. Keto Smoked Paprika Aioli
If you are on a keto diet and want to keep flavors high and carbs low, this smoked paprika aioli is worth checking out!
Smoked paprika pairs perfectly with minced garlic, and the lemon juice lifts those rich and smokey flavors to perfection.
The smoky flavors from the paprika are rich and meaty, making it a perfect option for red meat or root vegetables.
12. Basil Pesto Aioli
What’s better than pesto? Basil pesto aioli! If you are a sucker for anything with pesto, this creamy basil pesto aioli packs massive fresh herb flavors in a creamy aioli sauce.
A hearty portion of raw garlic and pureed fresh herbs tastes like summertime on a plate.
Serve this dip alongside french fries, or marry it with pasta for a light and flavorful lunch.
13. Horseradish Aioli Sauce
Adding freshly prepared horseradish is a great way to add a pop of heat to classic aioli.
It’s a great way to add a little heat to aioli without breaking out the hot sauce. Paired with fresh garlic and lemon juice, it’s insanely potent!
If your bland chicken or seafood dinners need an extra pop of flavors, this horseradish aioli sauce is worth checking out.
14. Lemon-Dill Aioli Sauce
Are you on the hunt for a great dip to serve with seafood? Lemon-dill aioli is light and bright and pairs perfectly with a tender fish cut.
You may even want to swap classic tartar sauce in favor of bright aioli sauce!
Pureed fresh dill provides a light flavor base that makes aioli delightfully green and ready for a summer BBQ.
A subtle pop of spices from a touch of Dijon mustard marries so well with the bright flavors of lemon and dill.
15. Mustard Aioli Sauce
This aioli sauce is perfect for your next summer cookout with a generous portion of zesty and slightly spicy mustard.
It tastes like a classic aioli sauce with plenty of raw garlic, but adding mustard earns it a bright yellow hue and tons of tangy and slightly spicy flavors.
Serve with classic cookout food such as burgers and hot dogs, or as a great dipping sauce for onion rings!
16. Chimichurri Aioli
Chimichurri sauce is the ultimate pairing for red meat. With tons of bright herb flavors from fresh parsley, shallots, and oregano, it’s pretty hard to resist.
For added creaminess, you add a little or a lot of mayo, depending on your taste. If you find that your chimichurri aioli is just a little too potent, amp up the mayonnaise!
It’s an excellent condiment for anything with red meat, whether flank steak, burgers, fajitas, or a dressing for a steak salad.
17. Sriracha Aioli
Whenever garlic and sriracha gather, your tastebuds will sing. Sriracha aioli incorporates everything you love about garlicky aioli with an elevated heat kick from the sriracha.
What’s great about this super simple recipe is that you can easily make it vegan by swapping mayo for vegan mayo.
