This Lemon Dill Aioli recipe is super simple and only takes 5 minutes to make! The dill and lemon juice combined with the creamy mayo makes for a nice creamy and tangy combination. We like to serve this sauce with just about any dish. This aioli can be used with proteins or vegetables. It is great to keep in your refrigerator so that you have it on hand for any meal!
This recipe was inspired by my Whole30 Salmon Cakes. The old bay seasoning in the salmon cakes combined with the dill aioli is oh so delicious! I love the hint of lemon in this dish. It is the key to it pairing as well as it does with seafood but that does not mean it can not be used for other proteins and dishes as well.

Step by Step Instructions
- Tip # 1: When mixing the aioli, you will want to make sure you are scraping the sides of the bowl as well as the bottom so that it is well combined.
