Basil is one of my favorite fresh herbs. I grow several plants in my garden every summer. I love adding fresh basil to pastas and salads. I also make a ton of pesto and when I still have an abundance I make this flavored mayonnaise.

It is quick and easy and adds a wonderful flavor to any sandwich, wrap or could even be used to make a salad dressing.
