Fresh Herb Mayonnaise

herbs for mayo

Oregano, basil, dill and green onions combine to make a delicious and refreshing mayonnaise that will change the way you look at sandwiches forever.

I know that I totally missed Mouthwatering Monday last week, sorry y’all ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  We didn’t come back from our camping trip until late on Monday and then I didn’t even turn my computer on until Wednesday.

Now without further chatter, here’s the recipe for my new favorite mayonnaise I’ve added it to ham and cheese, grilled cheese, toasted roast beef and sauteed onion sandwiches and more.

Recipe: Fresh Herb Mayonnaise


  • 2 C mayo
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chopped dill
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chopped oregano
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chopped basil
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chopped green onions


  1. Chop your herbs and mix them with your mayonnaise
  2. Place the mixture in the refrigerator and allow the flavors to incorporate and get all yummy for at least 4 hours

Quick Notes

My favorite way to use this: Smoked Ham or Turkey with swiss and salad greens on toasted whole grain bread.

  1. I’ll be honest I don’t put mayo on anything very often. I’ll use as an ingredient in making something but as a condiment not so much. Now herb-mayo…totally different story ๐Ÿ™‚ YUM!! Love it on killer sandwiches.

  2. I’m thinknig about how this would be in mayonnaise-based salads like macaroni and potato. It would be a few more ingredients to buy (unless you had an herb garden), but could add a really special something.

  3. Just this week I was thinking about adding some different flavors to mayo after my husband picked up a Chipotle Mayo from Kraft. Mmmmm!
