Garlic Basil Mayo

I used this as a lobster tail dipping sauce, but it is perfect for this time of year.


  • 1 room-temperature egg
  • 2 TBSP apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground mustard
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil (or 2 TB fresh*)
  • Pinch paprika
  • Pinch cayenne
  • A little more than 1 cup light olive oil


Add all ingredients except for olive oil to food processor. 

Blend for about a minute and slowly add the olive oil. I just pour it in to the little spout on top and let it drip through. 

Let blend until olive oil is fully incorporated and a mayo texture is achieved. 

Chill and serve!


*I used a handful of herbs. Mostly basil, but several leaves of lemon balm. Plus a splash of lemon.
