Why make this recipe
You are going to love this Basil Mayonnaise!
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. It would be perfect in these turkey wraps!
Another tasty flavored mayonnaise we make is this chipotle mayonnaise! Both would be delicious set out on a sandwich bar.
What is basil mayonnaise?
It is mayonnaise flavored with fresh basil. It is also called basil aioli.
My daughter loves this on her sandwiches during the summer time. We make it every chance we get.
Can I use other herbs?
Yes, you could use fresh thyme, cilantro or chives in place of the fresh basil.
Can I make this flavored mayonnaise vegan?
You bet! You can use any type of mayonnaise to make this recipe - even vegan mayonnaise.
