Red-pepper Pine Nut Aioli

Yield Makes 1 1/2 cups
Nutty, rich, and garlicky, this makes a great dip for any vegetable antipasto. It's good on a pork or roast beef sandwich too. Prep Time: about 15 minutes. Notes: If you're worried about eating a raw egg, don't use it. Instead, after whirling the red peppers and pine nuts in step 1, whirl in 1 cup mayonnaise and the garlic paste, then season with lemon juice.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted red peppers
  • 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 large egg (see Notes)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup mild olive oil
