Homemade Pesto Mayonnaise

1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
pinch kosher salt
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup Simply Delicious Classic Fresh Basil Pesto (you can use your favorite pesto)

In a food processor, puree the egg yolk, lemon juice, mustard and salt. Once you have a very smooth mixture, very slowly drizzle the olive oil in while the food processor is still running. VERY SLOWLY!

You will notice the mayo thickening as you add more oil.  When you are done adding the oil the mayo will be thick and delicious!  If it is not thick, add more oil 1/8 teaspoon at a time until desired thickness is reached.  If your mayo is too thick for your taste, add water 1/8 teaspoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.

In a medium bowl combine pesto and mayonnaise, stir until creamy.  Pour into a resealable container.  I use a pint mason jar.  This recipe doubles perfectly!
