We can't find a store bought mayonnaise that doesn't use some kind of heavily processed oil, like safflower or canola oil. So Xaver set out to find a recipe to make homemade paleo olive oil mayonnaise but all the ones he tried online were pretty terrible or they did not set up like mayonnaise. Some had too much egg, not enough egg….I don't know what all the problems were but let's just say we wasted alot of expensive organic eggs on recipes that it seemed people never really tested. We actually do eat the stuff we share here! LOL
And did I mention the taste?! WOW. I am not one who likes mayonnaise based dishes at all but this mayo doesn't taste like your average mayo. It is rich, tangy, and fresh, perfect for a salad!
This recipe is the triumph after all of Xaver's trials and errors – it comes out perfect every time, in minutes! You'll make it all the time once you see how quick easy, and fresh it is.Print
Paleo Olive Oil Mayonnaise
- Prep Time: 15 minutes
- Total Time: 15 minutes
- Yield: 16 1x
- 1 cup of paleo-friendly oil (Cold-Pressed Olive Oil, Avocado Oil or other liquid oil)
- 1 whole egg (organic)
- 1 egg yolk (organic)
- Juice from 1/2 lemon or lime (about 2 tsp if using juice and not whole fruit)
- Dash of Salt
- Place the egg and egg yolk in a tall, narrow glass or container. Add oil, lemon juice, and salt. Let set for a minute. Submerge an immersion blender into the glass until it touches the bottom and blend until the mayonnaise starts to stiffen. While the blender is still on, move it upwards to blend any oil sitting on top of the mixture. Refrigerate immediately. It lasts for about a week.
- You can add chili powder or other spices to make flavored mayos. Please note that using raw eggs may be dangerous to your health – research this with your doctor before consuming raw eggs.
