Basic Aioli

Aioli and mayonnaise are made with basically the same ingredients, with one exception: aioli has a good lot of garlic flavor in it. It's loaded with character and can be served with seafood as a dressing, spooned into Mediterranean seafood stews and soups, or spread on gluten-free bread and sprinkled with cheese for a tasty crouton.
