Mayo is more than just a condiment–it's the base for creamy salad dressings, the perfect addition to classic deviled eggs, a thickener and flavor enhancer for dips and sauces, and it makes a bacon, lettuce and tomato wrap the best meal. Making your own from scratch is super easy and it tastes amazing–you won't ever want to go back to the store-bought jarred stuff.
Healthy Homemade Mayonnaise
grain-free • gluten-free • dairy-free • sugar-free
PREP TIME: 15 minutes
YIELD: 3/4 cup
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon gluten-free Dijon mustard
- 1/2 cup macadamia nut oil or avocado oil
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, lemon juice, and mustard until blended and bright yellow, about 30 seconds. Begin adding 1/4 cup of the macadamia nut oil to the yolk mixture a few drops at a time, whisking constantly. Gradually add the remaining 1/4 cup of macadamia nut oil and the olive oil in a slow, thin stream, whisking constantly, until the mayonnaise is thick and lighter in color.
Store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
