Say hello to Basil Mayo AKA your new favorite summer sandwich condiment. Simply blend fresh basil leaves with your favorite mayo and you have Basil Mayo. It’s herbaceous, creamy, fresh, delicate, and indulgent all at once. It's my latest obsession. The gist is: two parts mayo, one part fresh basil. So easy, scale it up or down as needed. Enjoy it on summer tomato toasts, or truly any sandwich (looking at you, BLTs).
Hilariously enough, mayo has repulsed me for most of my life, with the exception of the necessary spread of mayo on a sandwich. BUT since being pregnant I have found myself *craving* sandwiches with mayo on them and potato salads with mayo. What! Who is she?! No matter which mayo camp you fall into, I promise you’ll love this Basil Mayo. As a note - you can make this in a blender, food processor, or even better - in a widemouth jar with an immersion blender to keep cleanup and storage a breeze. Check out the Riffs section at the bottom of the recipe for simple ways to swap ingredients if you're feelin' it.
