- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 2-3 garlic cloves, finely minced
- 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard (optional)
- Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Combine all of the ingredients in the bowl of a small food processor or blender and process until smooth. Store covered in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight to meld the flavors.
Variations on a theme
Add your favorite fresh herbs: rosemary or sage, even mint is superb.
Add tapenade; it’s magical with lamb or turkey.
Substitute lime juice and add cilantro and chilies or wasabi; either goes great with a turkey or tuna burger.
Skip the lemon, add sun-dried tomato pesto and fresh basil; it’s divine.
