Roasted Red Potatoes with Garlic Aioli

Roasted Red Potatoes with Garlic AioliMy family loves bold flavors. We make garlic dip for our potato chips, enjoy a garlicky Buttermilk Garlic Ranch Dressing, and add an extra clove of garlic to just about any dish that can take it. So when I was trying to dream up a way to dress up some roasted red potatoes, I of course turned to my friend…the garlic clove.

These roasted red potatoes are drizzled with a creamy, tangy, and yes, garlicky aioli. An aioli is a creamy mayonnaise style sauce. It can be flavored in so many ways but adding garlic is a classic way of giving aioli a delicious kick. It can be fairly addictive so make plenty of potatoes!
