Garlic Aioli

I love when my food photography is inspired by the food I eat. I had left over turkey from Thanksgiving and wanted something lighter than a sandwich so I made a turkey wrap with a homemade garlic aioli. You can use this on as a spread on any sandwich, hamburger, or you can dip you fries or chips in it. Enjoy!!
