Basil Flavored Mayonnaise

Flavored mayonnaise is a great trick to have up your sleeve in the kitchen. Use it to add extra flavor wherever you would use mayonnaise.

So this recipe I was a little sceptical about when I saw it on the website. But once I tried it, I was pleasantly surprised. There is even a "secret" ingredient (besides basil, of course) that adds a little something special. Keep reading to find out what ...

This basil mayonnaise adds the sweetness of ripe mango. It is simple to make so it won't add much more time than it takes to open the mayonnaise jar, but it will add so much more flavor!


  • 2 ripe mangos, peeled and pulp removed
  • 2 Tablespoons roasted garlic
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, shredded


Blend the mango pulp, garlic and mayonnaise in a food processor or blender. With the blender running, stream in the olive oil until the mixture is smooth. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in the basil. Season with salt and pepper.

You can use this mayonnaise right away or refrigerate for up to 3 hours. Any longer and it will begin to separate.

This mayonnaise is great with roasted or grilled vegetables.
