Passionate herb mayonnaise
Two short cuts that I refuse to go long on.
- I don't make mayonnaise. I let Helman's do the work and simply add to it.
- When one of my herb plants start taking over the yard, that herb will quickly find a place on the family menu.
That makes this mayonnaise recipe both taste great while being a problem solver. Almost any herb tastes great when combined with passionfruit's sweet-tart taste. This mayonnaise is perfect for sandwiches, but also makes veggies a big hit on the dining room table.
- Passionfruit - 2
- Ginger, fresh - 2
- Lime - 1
- Tarragon leaves - 1/4 cup
- Mayonnaise - 1 cup
- Egg yolk - 1
- Passionfruit - 1
- Slice 2 of the passionfruit in half. Scoop out the insides into a food processor.
- Slice off 2" from a ginger hand. Use a veggie peeler to scrap off the skin. Add to the food processor.
- Add about 1/2 tsp of lime zest and the juice of one lime to the food processor.
- Add the herb leaves to the food processor. Pulse until partially chopped.
- Add the mayonnaise, egg yolk, salt, and pepper. Process until combined while adding the olive oil in a steady stream.
- Refrigerate at least 2 hours (store in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks).
- Serve chilled. Slice the remaining passionfruit in half. Scoop out the insides and top the mayonnaise on the dish.
- Serving suggestions:
- Add to chopped potatoes for a great potato salad
- Serve with sliced tomatoes, asparagus or broccoli.
