Nutritionist Corner Recipe: Homemade Mayonnaise
Posted Jun 29th, 2015
3 egg yolks at room temperature
1 Tablespoon lemon juice, at room temperature
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard or 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard spice
2/3 cup Clearly Organic Olive Oil
1/3 cup organic coconut oil (warm)
Salt and pepper to taste
Place egg yolks into a blender and blend until smooth. Add lemon juice, Dijon mustard, salt & pepper, and slowly blend until evenly distributed. Very slowly add olive oil while blending. The mixture will start to emulsify as you add oil. Blend for 1-2 minutes before adding coconut oil. Add additional warm coconut oil slowly. Scrape sides of blender and blend for another 1-2 minutes.
Variations: 1 cup Clearly Organic Olive Oil or canola oil can be used verses adding coconut oil.
This mayo recipe goes great on Chicken Salad.
