Being rather tired of traditional burger condiments, I set out to develop a spread for burgers that was both bright and took advantage of my spring herbs. The amazing result was the birth of my Lemon Herb Mayo Spread (recipe follows). Here it tops my Lamb Burger (click for recipe). In addition to being a delicious topping for burgers, it is a tasty dip.
Here is my recipe:
1 cup Hellmann's mayonnaise
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons fresh thyme, finely chopped
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1 teaspoon fresh oregano, finely chopped (optional)
1 teaspoon fresh basil, finely minced (optional)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Here is how I put it together:
1. Place mayonnaise, lemon juice, fresh herbs and salt in small bowl. Stir until thoroughly combined.
2. Place in an airtight container and store in refrigerator until time to serve.
3. To serve, spread 2 to 3 teaspoons of spread on each of the toasted inside of a hamburger bun. Build your burger and enjoy!
