Lime-Chipotle Olive Oil Aioli Coleslaw

Posted by Rachel Dougherty on


I like to refer to this as the "money sauce", a smokey, spicy, garlicky aioli, made from chipotle infused extra virgin olive oil. This this would make a shoe taste good if applied.

Chipotle-Lime Aioli Ingredients
1 cup Chipotle Olive Oil
2 large egg yolks at room temperature**
2 garlic cloves, smashed
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
 
In the bowl of a food processor or blender jar, add the egg yolks, salt, garlic and lime juice.  Process until well combined.  
 
VERY SLOWLY, drop by drop, begin to drizzle in the Chipotle Olive Oil while the machine is running. Extreme patience must be taken with this slow process, as too much olive oil poured in at once will cause the sauce to break.  
 
Once the olive oil is completely poured in and emulsified, remove the aioli to a sealed container and refrigerate.  This condiment is fabulous on coleslaw, sandwiches, egg salad sandwiches, shoes... basically anything.   
 
**This recipe contains raw egg yolks.  If you have a compromised immune system, you can use pasteurized eggs for this recipe.
 
Makes 1 1/4 cups of aioli
