Basil Mayo

Basil Mayo
This basil mayo is such a simple but a goodie!

It goes with just about everything, from a burger to a green potato salad!

Have it ready to go in the fridge and serve with rissoles, as a dip, with crumbed chicken or fish, croquettes etc etc etc!

With loads of basil in season it’s the perfect thing to make!

It’s really so simple. Just blitz up fresh basil leaves and then continue like you ordinarily would to make fresh mayonnaise!
