Recipe from Whole 30 blog.  There are great variations for the mayo here as well as a wonderful “ranch” dressing recipe.


Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cup of light olive oil, divided ( sunflower oil works great too)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 to 1 lemon, juiced

Directions

  1. Bring all ingredients to room temperature. Place the egg, 1/4 cup of olive oil, mustard powder, and salt in a mixing bowl, blender, or food processor. (my recommendation is to use a stick blender)  Mix thoroughly.
  2. While the food processor or blender is runningslowly drizzle in the remaining cup of olive oil.
  3. After you’ve added all the oil and the mixture has emulsified, add lemon juice to taste, stirring gently with a spoon to incorporate.
