  • 250 mL or 1 cup good quality mayonnaise
  • 5 g or 2 garlic cloves (one large one)
  • salt (up to 1/2 teaspoon)


  1. Mince garlic; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt
  2. Mash with fork tongs until liquified; add 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  3. Taste
  4. According to your palate, add more garlic mixture, or mayonnaise; I like it strong, so usually all lots of garlic and salt to the mayo, but definitely taste as you go, combining well first, until you hit your sweet spot
  5. Write it down so you can make it again with your eyes closed!
