Top-ranked recipe named "Roasted Garlic and Avocado Aioli"
An elegant step up from the ordinary garlic-mayo version. This has a softer taste and wonderful pale green color.
"Loved it!!! I added habanero to the garlic and mayo mixture. I love spicy food. Thank you for sharing. "- Bvanhoogten
Preheat oven to 350 (or do this while baking something else).
Place 4 cloves of garlic in an ovenproof dish or ramekin. Place a small amount of EVOO in the dish and stir to coat the garlic. Roast the garlic in the oven until it''s light bown, soft, and caramelized. About 20 - 25 minutes. Remove and allow to cook in the dish.
Meantime chop up the other 4 cloves, peel and chop the avocado, and place these in your blender or food processor. Add the mayonnaise (I used Miracle Whip Lite) and mix briefly.
Use a zester or small sharp knife to remove about a tablespoon of zest (just the colored part of the rind) from the limes. Then squeeze the lime juice into a separate bowl. Add the lime zest to the mayo-garlic mixture and mix briefly.
Now add the avocado and about 2 teaspoons of lime juice and blend until smooth. While blending drizzle in the rest of the olive oil and add a bit of salt & pepper.
Taste the aioli then adjust the thickness and flavor with lime juice, salt, and pepper as needed.
Serve on fish, chicken, or vegetables

I spooned this over roasted salmon. It's also good on green beans or other firm veggies.
