Description

You’ll want to use this incredible basil aioli on everything! It’s quick and easy to make, featuring this fresh and peppery green herb. Variation: try Pesto Aioli!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 12 large basil leaves or 2 tablespoons very finely chopped basil
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 1/2 teaspoon white wine vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1/3 cup high quality mayonnaise (vegan as desired)

Instructions

  1. Mince the garlic as finely as possible. Then use the side of your knife blade to mash and grind it into a paste. (Alternate method: you can combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.*)
  2. Mince the basil as finely as possible.
  3. Whisk together the garlic and basil with the white wine vinegar, yellow mustard, and mayonnaise. Keeps in the refrigerator for 2 weeks.

Notes

*If you’re planning to use a food processor, check out our Pesto Aioli: it’s similar but adds Parmesan cheese for big Italian flavor.
