Wild garlic dips for grilling

In spring, wild garlic is one of the first wild herbs that can be harvested, especially on river meadows or in forests. But beware! It can easily be confused with the leaves of lily of the valley or autumn crocus. However, these are poisonous. That's why it's best to buy your wild garlic at the farmers' market or plant it in your own garden instead. When collecting from nature, pay attention to the following:

  • Wild garlic smells intensely of garlic. It's best to rub the sheet between your fingers. If they smell like garlic, you have the right plant. However, this only works for the first few leaves. Then your hands smell it and you can no longer tell whether the plant is poisonous or not.
  • You can harvest wild garlic between March and May. Then the wild garlic blooms and it no longer tastes good.
  • A wild garlic leaf has one recognizable stem per leaf.
  • In contrast to the poisonous plants, wild garlic leaves are matt on the underside.
  • Wild garlic is best processed fresh. If you pick it up, it will lose its aroma.
  • Wild garlic leaves are cut off with scissors.
  • You don't know any place where wild garlic grows? No problem: on mundraub.org you can search for places near you.

Aioli - garlic dips for grill barbecue sauces and dips recipes

Aioli - garlic dips for grilling from Catalonia


  • eight cloves of garlic
  • 100 ml of olive oil
  • optional: mustard, salt, pepper, chili or egg yolk


The classic aioli cream consists exclusively of garlic and olive oil. The optional ingredients are not included in a classic aioli.

Remove the skin from the garlic cloves and cut them into quarters. Then put them in a mortar and crush them with a pestle. If the garlic is small, add a few drops (approx. 5 ml) of oil and chop the mixture until the oil is completely incorporated. Make sure that you further chop up any pieces of garlic that are still present. This is repeated until all the oil has been processed.

It is definitely better to add less oil per step. Otherwise the aioli will curdle. However, if this happens, you can add an egg yolk. This delays curdling.


Guacamole - barbecue sauces and dips Recipes for making barbecue dips yourself


Guacamole – one of the Mexican dips for grilling


  • 2 very ripe avocados
  • 1 lime (I also often use lime juice)
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 - 3 cloves of garlic
  • Salt, pepper and chili seasoning

You can optionally add:

  • 2 Tomatoes
  • 1 chili
  • Parsley / coriander
  • 2 tablespoons of yogurt


First, cut the onion and garlic cloves very small. Then you split the avocados and remove the pit. Spoon the avocado flesh out of the peel and then add it to the onion and garlic cubes. Cut away any brown spots. Then immediately drizzle lime juice over it to prevent the cream from discoloring. Add salt, pepper and chili seasoning to taste. The original guacamole is ready.

If you want to refine it even further, add diced tomatoes. If you want it to be spicier, you can add a chili pepper. If you want it to be milder, yogurt will help. Decorate the dip with parsley and coriander. Mexican guacamole doesn't just taste good with grilled food. You can also serve them as a dip with taco chips or potato chips. It also tastes very good as a spread.

 You can find more Mexican food here.

We will also be collecting more barbecue sauces and dips recipes here over time. It is therefore worth checking back again and again. Remember this page and you will always be up to date.
