I was trying to come up with a catchy name for this sauce. At first I was thinking…Slim’s Special Maytard Sauce. But it didn’t have that ring and zing I was looking for.

Whatever you call it, this sauce is quick and easy and delizioso. And it’s manly—strong and brave, but not as hairy and stubborn.

It’s basically an aioli sauce; the word is hard to pronounce…ah-ee-OH-lee, but the aioli sauces are some of my favorites. Aioli comes from aglio, the Italian word for garlic, which is the dominant flavor in this here Slim Sauce.

Gilroy, California, is the Garlic Capital of the World. Just thought I’d toss that out there.


If you want a little sweetness, add a little honey at the end.  



 6 tablespoons mayo

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice

1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon minced garlic

[OPTIONAL] 1 teaspoon raw honey


Put all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk whisk whisk, or put them in a jar with a lid, and shake shake shake!

You can pour it in shot glasses and drink it down, but I strongly suggest you use it as a dipping sauce. It goes well with Slim’s Poached Salmon, or Slim’s Manly Balls of Salmon.
