This simple za'atar aioli is great for dipping.
- 2 garlic cloves peeled, and chopped
- juice of one lemon
- 1 cup mayonnaise I used Best Foods vegan mayonnaise here, but any good mayonnaise will do.
- ¼ cup olive oil extra virgin
- 2 Tbsp za'atar can be substituted with 1 Tbsp sumac for a lemony aioli
- salt and pepper to taste
Place your chopped garlic and your lemon juice in a food processor, and allow to sit for 10 minutes. This helps the garlic 'bite' to mellow a bit.
After 10 minutes, blend your lemon and garlic, then add your mayo. Process until fully combined.
Slowly, while the processor is running, drizzle your olive oil into the mixture, until it incorporates.
Finally, add your za'atar for a final blending, and salt and pepper to taste.
