Looking for a tasty Paleo Mayonnaise recipe without the soybean oil and artificial preservatives? To avoid the canola oil, soybean oil and other vegetable oils in store-bought mayo – make your own Paleo Mayonnaise! It’s so easy, anyone can make it. And this recipe only has 5 ingredients!
Mayonnaise is great to make dips and used in treats such as deviled eggs, chicken salad, tuna salad, or plain as a dip for your artichoke leaves and hearts!
To make this recipe, you could use a food processor, blender or bowl and whisk and stir by hand – the latter is better if you want less clean-up! You could also stir in a bowl with an electric immersion hand blender.
PALEO MAYONNAISE RECIPE
1 large egg yolk
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp mustard powder (optional)
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup mild olive oil (MUST be mild flavored – NOT EVOO which will leave a strong flavor. You could also substitute avocado oil or macadamia oil for some/all of the olive oil.)
- Put the egg yolk in the bowl and add the lemon juice, mustard powder and salt.
- Do a quick whisk for about a minute.
- Add about half the oil and whisk again for a minute.
- Add the rest of the oil and whisk up till fluffy and mayo-like.
- That’s it! It’s ready to eat!
