Basil Jalapeno Aioli

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
Printable Recipe 
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!

I don't think I would have thought of these two flavors together.

I think this sounds delicious ... but you know me and jalapeno. Too bad my basil has seen it's last days due to frost. Pinning this one.

I have a garden still full of basil and jalapeños....I surely need to try my hand at making this-this sounds wonderful.

Oh yeah, this would rock with a variety of grilled meats.
