This recipe is absolutely delish and much easier than making homemade aioli with egg yolks and olive oil. We use it on chicken sandwiches, fish, with sweet potato fries and much more. Make sure to use fresh ingredients, it makes all the difference! Store in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

I love basil and I used so much that it looked much greener. Basil is not subtle and I wanted this to pop! I also added some salt and substituted lime juice and zest instead of lemon. It went fast. They say it will keep for about a week. You will need to make a gallon in this house for it to last a week. Read More
