Garlic Basil Mayonnaise

Take your regular mayonnaise and turn it into Garlic Basil Mayonnaise in five minutes! Perfect for sandwiches or as a dip for chicken or fish!



Forget about making just a regular sandwich for a minute. Sure its easy to just open up a jar of mayo and make a quick sandwich. But it’s just as easy to make that sandwich even better by making some of this Garlic Basil Mayonnaise.

I’m usually a non-condiment user. That might be a little surprising with all the recipes that are on here…but if you handed me a cheeseburger most of the time I eat it as is. No ketchup or mustard. Just the burger and the bun.

Unless it’s a cooking day and I’m eating whatever we just cooked up for lunch or dinner. Then I’m eating all the condiments, all the sauces, everything just like you see it in the picture.

And I always say the same thing after I take a bite. “Wow, the sauce really makes this.” Or the mayo we made or the topping we put on something. It always tastes so much better than having something plain.

But then I go back. Back to no condiment eating. I’m not really sure why…I just do.

Until I made this. This was the condiment that changed my condiment thinking. Turkey sandwich, grilled chicken, roast beef – anything you’d normally just put regular mayo on is now going to be a lot better.

All you have to do is toss everything into your blender or food processor and in 30 seconds you’re done.



Sandwich eating just got better.

But it doesn’t have to stop at just sandwiches…making a potato salad? Blend up a batch or two of this mayo and toss it with your potatoes instead of plain mayonnaise. Garlic Basil Potato Salad.

Making chicken salad? Garlic Basil Chicken Salad.

I could keep going but you guys get the idea. Try it out for yourself!

    Check the salt content of your mayo before you add the salt to this. I stopped using the Hellman’s because it was so salty, now using Duke’s-cheaper and less salt, so better in recipes and on my sandwiches!
