This quick and easy sauce packs more flavor punch than most complicated sauces. All it requires is a little chopping and measuring, a good stir, and a half hour or so to let the flavors meld. It’s the perfect accompaniment to my Chicken, Basil, & Brassica Sheet Pan Supper.

Basil Aioli


1 bunch fresh basil

1 lemon

1 small clove of garlic

2 Tbsp mayonnaise

1½ tsp Dijon mustard

½ tsp extra-virgin olive oil


1.) Finely chop the basil, for about ⅓ cup. Place in a small bowl.

2.) Mince or press the garlic and add it to the bowl.

3.) Grate ½ tsp zest from the lemon, and add it to the bowl. Juice the lemon for about 1 Tablespoon. Add it to the bowl.

4.) Add the mayonnaise, mustard, and olive oil. Stir or whisk to combine.
