This basil spread is great on sandwiches instead of using plain mayo. The Wholefoods market I go to uses it on some of their sandwiches but I have not made it myself. The recipe comes from their "American Summer Style" recipe booklet. In the booklet it is used on their grilled veggie sandwich but I have had it on their salmon sandwich among many others and it is very good.
- 2 -3 large garlic cloves, peeled
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 1⁄4 tablespoons lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
- mash garlic with salt.
- blend with the mayo, lemon juice and basil.
- chill until ready to serve.
This was really good. I used oregano instead of basil. I couldn't resist sorry I really love oregano. I loved the zest from the lemon. I spread this on a turkey sandwich. Thanks for the post.
This is my 2nd year of growing herbs so I am still looking for special ways to use them. I loved this recipe as it helped me to use my basil and was not any trouble. I really did not measure so I probably did not use the full cup of mayo and used all of the basil that I had picked so I had more of it. I did not use any salt. I put it on a slice of sourdough bread and then put sliced tomatoes and sliced chicken breast 15580. I then put shredded mozzarella on top and broiled. It was sooooo yummy! Thanks so much for getting me started on a great way to use my fresh basil.
I made this as posted and thought it wonderful on my sandwich. It's good and garlicky and gave the sandwich an extra kick. TFS.
