**READ ME: Keep in mind that while all of these recipes are Paleo. If you are currently doing the whole30, you will need to leave out all sweeteners!
I know, I know...but you will be able to enjoy them soon enough. Hang in there! I promise it's all worth it.**

{ paleo mayo }

Homemade condiments are much better for you, and they don't have all the sugar, preservatives, and chemicals that you get in the store bought kind. It's always a good idea to keep this on hand. Because it's great for many different things, and we like to use it as a base for salad dressings..my favorite "experiments" to come! Enjoy!
Homemade Mayo
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 2 T. lemon juice, room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 c.--plus 1 c. olive oil. (LIGHT, not extra virgin!)
1. Place the egg and lemon juice in a blender or food processor. Let them come to room temperature together, about 30-60 minutes. Add the dry mustard, salt, and  1/4 cup of the oil. Whirl until well mixed – about 20 to 30 seconds.

2. The only remaining job is to incorporate the remaining 1 cup oil into the mixture. To do this, you must pour very slowly… the skinniest drizzle you can manage and still have movement in the oil. This takes about three minutes or so. Breathe. Relax. Drizzle slowly.

3. If you’re using a blender, you’ll hear the pitch change as the liquid starts to form the emulsion. Eventually, the substance inside the blender will start to look like regular mayonnaise, only far more beautiful. Do not lose your nerve and consider dumping! Continue to drizzle. If your ingredients were all at room temperature and you were patient, you will be rewarded!
