Reasons to Love This Recipe

I have potentially surprising news for you — aioli is just a mayo-based sauce. It may have a fancy-sounding name, but it’s not fancy at all. In fact, it’s pretty easy to make.

All you need to make this aioli is mayo, Greek yogurt, and sriracha. (You can also make a chili/garlic version if you don’t have sriracha on hand.) The Greek yogurt adds some extra tanginess and lightens up this recipe just a bit.

You can whip this aioli up when you need a little extra something to complement your dish. Whether it’s a sandwich that needs a creamy spread, a dinner plate that could use a fancy little sauce smear, or an appetizer like fries, tofu nuggets, or eggplant bites that needs a dipping sauce, this recipe has you covered.

Preparation Tips

This one’s easy — just mix and you’re ready to enjoy your aioli! You can mix with a fork or a whisk, whatever you have on hand.

Store your aioli in a sealed container in the fridge for up to a week. You may just need to give it a stir before enjoying again.

You can use whatever type of mayo is your favorite. I made this recipe with nonfat plain Greek yogurt, but you could also make it with full-fat Greek yogurt. I haven’t made this recipe with a classic-style plain yogurt, but my guess it that it would turn out a bit more drippy in consistency.

Recipe Modifications

  • Make it lighter: use a 50/50 mix of light mayo and nonfat Greek yogurt
  • Spicier version: Add as much sriracha as your heart desires! You can also amp up the spice with a bit of cayenne and chili powder.
  • Vegan/non-dairy version: Use vegenaise instead of mayo and a Greek-style non-dairy yogurt.
  • Make in bulk: This recipe will make about 3/4 cup of aioli. If you’d like to fill a 16 oz mason jar, multiply this recipe by 2.5 (1 ¼ cup mayo, heaping 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt, 2.5 tbs sriracha)
  • Add more flavor: Add a tablespoon of minced garlic to amp up the flavor and make this a true aioli.
