Recipe: Lemon Aïoli

Whew!  This summer has been some kinda hot!  We have been so darn busy trying to start up our new business of HouseMaster, I have had little time to cook like I like.  Quick and easy is my kind of food of late.  One night we wrapped shredded rotisserie chicken in pita bread, topped with a little lettuce, tomato and chipped onion.  I didn’t have any cukes, so I couldn’t whip up a Tzatziki sauce, but I did whip up this refreshing Lemon Aïoli.  We topped our pitas, and it was so delicious.  The perfect summer meal!
