Homemade herb aioli

This homemade herb aioli is the perfect addition to home-made chips, roast vegetables, seared chicken or salad. Conventional store-bought mayonnaise uses cheap vegetable oils that cause inflammation in the body and contribute to plaque build-up in the arteries. Avocado has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits, and is rich in the healthy fat oleic acid.
