I first tried Pesto mayonnaise when we were at our granddaughter's ski meet. She had a sandwich with it on it--delicious. When I got home I got some fresh basil and made some Pesto so we could have the mayonnaise. Lots of work. One day I wanted some and didn't have fresh basil--guess what? This is a yummy substitute and you can have it anytime, and it is so easy and takes only a couple of minutes. I only make enough for a few sandwiches; then make again next time.

This recipe saved me when I forgot to buy pesto at the store for a recipe I was making. The recipe didn't call for mayonnaise pesto, but I knew it would go well in it (it was sandwich-ey). This made the dish and saved the day! I'd bet that it tastes even better if allowed a day for the flavors to meld and the dried basil to soften. If I make it again, I'll use a bit more garlic, too. Thank you!
