Fresh Basil Mayo

What a great use for your fresh basil.  This enhanced mayonnaise is a great compliment to your BLT's, grilled chicken sandwiches or cold cuts.  It adds a great perk to a homemade sandwich.  The possibilities here are truly endless. 

4 T. of real mayonnaise
7-8 medium-sized fresh basil leaves (finely snipped)
1/4 tsp. of fresh lemon juice

-Mix all ingredients together, cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour prior to using.  Makes less than a 1/4 cup.  Enjoy!
