It has a fancy name, but aioli is nothing more than garlicky mayonnaise. And like all mayo, this dressing is packed with fat and calories, thanks to the traditional base of oil and egg yolks. If you're making aioli at home, however, it's simple to lighten it up: Just use light or fat-free mayonnaise instead of the regular variety, and don't add any oil.
