Garlic Aioli

Ingredients
2 egg yolks
4 garlic cloves crushed
1 tsp dijon mustard
Juice half a lemon
250ml sunflower/mild olive oil
Salt and pepper

Method
In a small food processor blitz the egg yolk, garlic, lemon juice, dijon mustard.
Add the combined oil in a steady stream until the aioli becomes thickened.
Season with salt

I use a combination of oils as I find using all olive oil even the mild ones, leaves a bitter taste. I use half of each and its delicious.
