How to Make It

Step 1

Process mayonnaise and garlic clove in a food processor until smooth. Add basil leaves and lemon rind; pulse 3 to 4 times or until basil is finely chopped. Store in refrigerator up to 1 week.

Step 2

Even though this won't freeze, it's unbelievably delicious with a bowl of grape tomatoes or on a turkey sandwich. Use it in place of plain mayonnaise in deviled eggs or main dish salads; it's also great with chicken, shrimp, or tuna. Try this flavorful mayonnaise instead of tartar sauce the next time you serve your favorite fish.

I have been trying to find SIMPLE recipes for tuna salad or chicken salad that are really, really good. With this delightful mayonnaise, I can whip up some great tasting tuna or chiicken salad in minutes, just by mixing in the Lemon-Basil Mayonnaise with the tuna or chicken (freshly cooked or canned)! Outstanding! Kudos!
