Here's a fun fact: I love avocado. I also love tomato. And basil...and well...every ingredient in this recipe!
See? Isn't that avocado beautiful?? Don't you just want to eat it up?
Aioli is a fun word. It's also a delicious sauce...traditionally made out of garlic, olive oil, egg - and in some cases, mustard & mayo. There are many variations so I took a stab at one of my own.
