I went on a cruise and became obsessed with a particular sandwich. It had a very similar pesto mayo to this one. I put it on ciabatta bread with fresh mozzarella, fresh basil leaves, and tomato slices. Enjoy.
- 1 ounce fresh basil
- 1⁄2 garlic clove
- 1 pinch salt and pepper
- 3 -5 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- Place basil, garlic, salt / pepper, and olive oil into a small bowl using a submersion blender (or tiny food processor). Blend until mixed. Stir in mayo.
This was quite possibly the worst recipe I have ever tried. My intuition should have told me that there was something funky with this recipe when I saw the ingredients. I don't understand how in any universe 2 tbsp of Mayo plus 7+ tablespoons of wet ingredients would produce something with the consistency of Mayo. Mine basically came out like a smoothie and that was after adding upwards of a full cup of Mayo to the recipe. I wasted a large quantity of Mayo and destroyed my basil plan for nothing basically. Horrible, please do yourself a favour and skip this.
This was very good. I needed to add some zing to a roast pork sandwich and it was great!
