How to make Garlic Mayo
We're also giving you a quick and simple shortcut to making a garlic mayo - using mayo. Much easier on the arms. Just mince the garlic as finely as possible first, then use the side of a knife blade to smoosh it into a really smooth paste. Add this to a really good quality mayonnaise, along with some vinegar and yellow mustard.
Did you know that it's not just the cloves you can eat - certain hard-neck varieties produce green shoots that are tender and totally delish, like garlic flavoured scallions, and are great for adding to pestos and soups.
