Lemon Basil Dip



If you have Basil coming out your ears about now - this is the perfect way to use it up! My next door neighbor Jennifer first introduced me to this delicious dip about 6 years ago and it has become one of my favorite dips to serve with cold shrimp, cooked and cooled tortellini, or lightly cooked asparagus. I had not thought about it in a while - when low and behold, my friend Merry (who is just as happy as her name) brought it unexpectedly to a get together. I told her I was going home and putting the recipe on the blog!



1/4 fresh lemon juice (don't forget to "Beat the Lemon")
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 cup mayo

In a blender or food processor, combine all ingredients except mayo. Process until smooth. In a medium bowl, whip mayo until creamy. Stir in herb mixture. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. This dip SCREAMS summer!

Ah, just exactly what I was looking for a zesty basil dip that is quite different from pesto - Thankyou

This sounds awesome!!! I am going to have to find something to substitute for the garlic as I am nursing and it makes the baby gassy and pukey!!!
