Herb Mayonnaise

Create a mayonnaise with a little more oomph, combined with a variety of herbs, like in this recipe.

  • Yield: About 1 1/2 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 egg*
  • 2 teaspoons chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Creole mustard
  • Juice of one fresh lemon
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons chopped tarragon
  • 2 teaspoons chopped parsley
  • 2 teaspoons chopped dill
  • 2 teaspoons chopped basil

Directions

  • In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, combine the egg, garlic, mustard, and lemon juice. Process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. With the machine running, slowly add the oil in a steady stream, until an emulsion forms. Season with salt and pepper. Place the mayonnaise in a mixing bowl. Fold in the chopped herbs. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving. Serve the mayonnaise as a dipping sauce for fried seafood or a spread for sandwiches.
