Holy cow, this sandwich is SO good!! (I might have even eaten it several times in the last week! 😉 ) What really makes this outstanding is the lemon and basil aioli…the aioli will take just about any sandwich over the top.
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
- 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon of basil paste or fresh basil
- 1 tsp of minced garlic
- salt and pepper
- Substitution Option: 2 drops of Young Living Lemon oil in the place of lemon juice
- In a small bowl, place mayonnaise, lemon juice or Young Living Essential Oil drops, Dijon mustard, basil and minced garlic.
- Season with coarse salt and ground pepper.
- Stir well to combine.
I use Young Living’s lemon oil as a substitute for the fresh lemon, because I alway have it on hand. As a reminder, NEVER use any oil other than therapeutic grade.
