Aioli at restaurants in America is usually not as thick as mayonnaise. This recipe is related to my blog post Thomas Keller’s Mayonnaise Or Aioli. Here is a recipe adapted from a recipe in a video by ChefSteps for making American aioli. The sugar can be substituted with honey or agave, and the vinegar can be substituted with lemon juice or different types of vinegar. Consider chilling the sauce and serving it on a sandwich or as a dip with crudités [1][2] or fries.

Note: 1) making taco sauce with aioli with agave and cayenne may be interesting
