Sriracha aioli is a taste-explosion! It's not too spicy but has a wonderful depth of flavor. The quick dip recipe is ready in 2 minutes with just 5 ingredients. Easily vegan.
All the wonderfully strong flavors, garlic, lime juice and sriracha hot sauce all merge together with the mild creamy mayo.
The results are the most delicious dipping sauce! It's seriously addictive and it's sure to become a favorite with you!
It certainly is at my house.
This easy dip bursts with flavor, but not in a 'my mouth is burning' way. More in a taste-explosion sort of way.
You've gotta just try it.
So, why not just stir sriracha into mayo? Well, making a quick 'cheats' aioli gives WAY more flavor. It's worth the extra minute or two it takes to make it. Trust me. It's like sriracha mayonnaise, but better!
Both aioli and mayonnaise are creamy emulsions. However, aioli is made from garlic and olive oil while mayo doesn't have garlic, but does have egg.
Sure, I could have made an aioli from scratch for this, but then it wouldn't be such a quick recipe! And I love how the addition of mayo makes it thick and rich.
So, don't wait. You can make Sriracha Aioli in about two minutes.
Two minutes to heaven. Yup.
Make a batch and I promise it won't last long in your fridge.
This recipe is vegetarian but easily vegan. Just use vegan mayo!
- Mayonnaise (or use dairy free vegan mayo)
- lime juice (or lemon juice)
