Lemon Herb Mayonnaise

 Lemon Herb Mayonnaise
Sometimes, simple is just want you want...something a little out of the ordinary to elevate an everyday dish.
Fresh herbs, simply chopped and added as a "stir in", are your perfect kitchen partner in my take on a
mayonnaise with the addition of fresh herbs and a burst of lemon flavor.

Use as a sandwich spread, as a base for a red skin potato salad, dolloped atop seafood or as a flavor enhancer with roasted veggies!

Lemon Herb Mayonnaise
 
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
3 Tablespoons chopped fresh chives
3 Tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon
3 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
3 Tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

Place mayonnaise in a food processor. Add the herbs, processing just until smooth, about 30 seconds.
Transfer mixture to a bowl, then stir in lemon juice and lemon zest.

Season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover and chill until ready to use.

May be made 1 day ahead.
