Ever have one of those days when you've got a bunch of leftovers and you find the perfect way to marry them? We recently had one of those moments. We had a head of local butter lettuce, some leftover grilled chicken paillard, some sugar cured bacon and fresh pitas. I uncovered a nice organic lemon and some chives and thought, "aoili!".
I have a friend who hates leftovers, but I think if you get a little creative, you can make great use of them. This wasn't exactly too creative, but it certainly was tasty and you could just make lettuce wraps if you want to go low carb or gluten free.
This "cheaters" aioli is very fast and easy to make:
Simply add 1/4 cup mayo or low fat Greek yogurt, zest one small garlic clove, zest a lemon and stir in 1 tsp fresh chopped chives. Voila!
Gather the ingredients...
Stuff them in a pita and there you have it! Super easy!
