In the bowl of a food processor with knife blade attached, combine mayonnaise, basil leaves, 1/4 tsp. salt, and lemon juice. Puree until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.
In a large skillet over medium-low heat, cook bacon until very crispy. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined surface; when cool, break into 1/4-inch chunks.
