Roasted Red Pepper Aioli

  • Servings: Makes about 1 1/2 cups
  • Print
1 cup roasted red peppers (you can use store bought or roast your own)
1 heaping tablespoon chopped garlic
4 egg yolks or 4 ounces pasteurized liquid egg yolk
1 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1 teaspoon chili pepper sauce (i.e., Sambal, Tabasco, or even red pepper flakes)
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup salad oil
Salt to taste

Combine all ingredients except the oils in a food processor.  While machine is running, add the oils very, very slowly to emulsify.  It is imperative to add the oils in a slow, steady stream to achieve emulsification.  Serve immediately or store in refrigerator for up to one week.


  • To make an aioli into a salad dressing, slowly whisk in warm water, one tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency is achieved.
