Easy as 1, 2, 3: Basil Mayo

For one of our recent FarmerChef specials we paired cute little sourdough wheat slider buns with an interesting Italian sausage made of locally sourced lamb and spices. It might be a bit of a challenge to duplicate this lamb sausage slider at home, but you can easily whip up what we put on the sliders.

A photo of the sliders with Basil MayoWe blended together mayo, basil, and red wine vinegar…a perfect and easy way to kick up a salad or sandwich.  And since this recipe is mix as you go, you won’t have to worry about what to do with a jar full of leftovers. It works really well if you have your own basil plant close by.

1.  Select one basil leaf:  mince with knife on cutting board.
2.  Measure 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise into it a small bowl.
3.  Add 1/2 teaspoon red wine vinegar.  Mix all ingredients together and spread on any sandwich you choose!

This simple recipe makes enough for two sandwiches.

Do you use herbs to amp up the flavor of simple foods like sandwiches?

    It’s such a simple recipe, but it was really tasty. The sourdough was delicious, but you’ll have to visit the restaurant to try some of that!
