Basic Flavored Mayonnaise Recipe

The Basics: Flavored Mayonnaise

Once you've learned how to make homemade mayonnaise, it's fun to get creative and make different mayonnaise flavors. My favorite, shown here, is basil-garlic mayo. It's a creamy, tangy, and fragrant spread that's delicious slathered on sandwiches or served as a dip alongside grilled vegetables like artichokes and zucchini. It's easy to put together: simply whisk the mayo with the herbs and seasonings of your choice. The addition of citrus goes a long way, as do other condiments like hot sauce or horseradish. All you need to know are the basic proportions; to find out what they are, keep reading.

I'm not a big mayo person...but I just made a batch of Ina Garten's basil mayo and I CANNOT stop eating it! It's so delicious...I've been alternating eating BLT's and tomato sandwiches all week. Ina uses lemon juice and olive oil (which I thought was a bit strange) and it adds so much flavor!! I can't wait to try other flavored mayos!
