Garlic Mayonnaise

My eldest sister always says to me why I never post any of my easy, simple recipes. When I tell her I am having a chicken salade or a prawn salade for lunch or dinner, she is like why you don't post them they are so delicious ( Hans showed her how to make them when he was once in her place and they love it now ) and I always tell her actually these things are so easy that it is bit silly to post in my blog.
To which she replies it is not because you think it is easy to make that everybody think it is easy to make.
So I think from now on I am going to post atleast one super easy simple recipe in my blog once a month :-)
Like this Garlic Mayonnaise, it is so easy that you can make in a flash.
Just have to make Home made mayonnaise which take less that 5 minutes to make,  and if you don't like to use to make mayonaise at home as it use raw eggs, you can always use shop bought mayo for making this.
I use this mayo for spreading in pita breads with meat or chicken filling, and especciall make these garlic mayonaise when I do Fondue Bouguigninne at home.

You can double the recipe if you like, depends on for what you use them and for how many people you are making for.





I cup Home made Mayonnaise If you are using my recipe of making home made mayo then add the garlic into the bowl together with oil, eggs etc.. ( you can also use shop bought one too)
1 to 2 garlic cloves ( we like the taste of garlic here at home )
 Add the mayonaise in a bowl, then add the garlic puree , I use a garlic press so that it is very fine, you can grate the garlic fine or chop it very fine or make into a paste. Mix everything well and keep in the fridge.
The flavours are much better if you make this mayonaise if you make it few hours befroe you use it.
Now did I say that it is such a easy thing to make.
