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.
