I was asked by Strongbow to come up with a recipe that would pair well with the flavors in their hard apple cider. When I think of drinking hard ciders, with their warm apple-y bite, I think about hanging out with friends on a winter day in big, bulky sweaters (maybe that's what I'm thinking about right now because it's cold and cloudy here in Northern California). So I wanted to come up with something that would work well for a casual winter get-together.

I love serving French fries when I entertain because... everyone loves French fries. Honestly, do you know anyone who doesn't? But to elevate them, I like to serve them with unique and flavorful dipping sauces. So enter my quick and easy aioli recipe!

Lemon Garlic Aioli Recipe

I once saw a cooking show where an old French woman in Provence made this amazing homemade aioli using just five ingredients (garlic, lemon, salt, egg yolk, and olive oil) and a mortar and pestle. What she was doing looked so effortless and old-school. And it looked so delicious when she was done. I knew someday I'd have to try it, to see if it actually was that effortless and delicious.

If you know me, you know I love cooking with the freshest ingredients. So off to the farmer's market I went to get my garlic and lemon for the aioli, and my tomatoes, basil, and rustic rye bread for the sandwich.
