Although I’ve been eating a paleo-style diet for the better part of three years, I never made mayonnaise until recently, 1. because we don’t eat sandwiches and 2. because I’ve never really liked dressings or dips. That all changed when I fell in love with an amazing chopped salad, which I decided to recreate. For the dressing, I needed some mayonnaise, so it only made sense to make my own!
Here are the simple instructions.
Homemade, Paleo-Friendly Mayonnaise Recipe
- 1 large egg yolk
- 1 t. apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 t. honey
- 1/2 t. real salt
- 1/2 t. mustard
- 1/4-1/2 cup avocado oil
- Place all ingredients but the oil in a jar and blend with a stick blender (also called an immersion blender).
- While continuing to blend, slowly pour the avocado oil into the mixture, one tablespoon at a time.
- Once the mayonnaise reaches a nice, thick, blended consistency, discontinue adding oil.
