When I saw this recipe on We are not Martha, I saved it and knew I would have to try it immediately!! (I bet that surprises, none of you by now!) And boy, oh boy, was I glad I did! With all the sauces I have made, I can't believe I have never put these two flavors together. But, as I always like to say.. better late than never!! You can use this as a dipping sauce or put it on a sandwich as Sues did... either way, you're definitely going to want to try this!
Basil Jalapeno Aioli
Slightly adapted from Sues, We are not Martha
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 jalapeno, seeds and stem removed and roughly chopped
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
8-10 small to medium sized fresh basil leaves
Place the jalapeno in a small food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add the basil and mayo and pulse again until mixture is well blended. Pour into a small bowl and serve with chicken, fish or on sandwiches. Enjoy!
