Basil Aioli

Aioli is a garlic mayonnaise from the south of France. This version uses commercial mayonnaise as a base to avoid the small but worrisome health risks associated with eating raw egg yolk.

1 cup mayonnaise
3 cloves garlic, put through a garlic press
24 fresh basil leaves, thinly slivered
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Combine the mayonnaise, garlic, basil, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl and whisk to mix. Makes about 1 cup.

Tester's note: To make this lower in fat, omit oil and "zap" portobello caps with non-fat cooking spray.
