Earlier this week I made tilapia burgers and I wanted a fresh tasting condiment to accent the flavors that are in the burger, so that’s how this cilantro mint mayonnaise was born.
Once you make your own mayonnaise, you’ll never go back to buying it already made. Not only do you have the cost savings, but you can customize the mayonnaise and add just about any flavor you want. I like to make a big batch of this mayonnaise without the cilantro and mint and that way I always have it on hand and I have a base for any flavors I want to add.
