Homemade Basil Mayonnaise Sauce

by Michelle

Homemade basil mayonnaise is fast and easy to make in a blender or food processor. If you want to use raw egg yolk, buy irradiated eggs which are now available in most markets.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes


1 large egg
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
2 Tablespoons chopped green onions
1 teaspoon salt
8 fresh ground black pepper
1 cup olive oil


Combine the egg, lemon juice, basil, green onions, salt, and pepper in a food processor or blender and puree for 15 seconds. Basil will give a nice colour and will add a sweet taste to your preparation. While the processor is running, slowly stream in the olive oil.

When all of the oil has been added, turn off the machine and scrape down the sides and cover. Process again until the mixture becomes a thick mayonnaise. Remove the mayonnaise to an airtight container and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Use within 24 hours.

Yields: 1 cup
