One reason I have been so eager to have my own chickens is so that I could happily make my own (much healthier) version of mayonnaise. I know most people have this I love it, or I hate it mentality. Well, I love it. Especially if it is good for you and I don’t mean Hellman’s Light either. blech.
Making your own just takes a few seconds and it is worth it…
All you need is:
A blender or food processor
A fresh egg
1 cup of Light oil, in my case I used Safflower oil. I used a light olive oil before, but I felt it was still too strong.
1 Tbsp. Vinegar
1 Tbsp. Fresh Lemon juice
1 tsp. salt
Begin with your blender and add your egg, 1/4 cup oil, salt, vinegar and lemon juice. Blend this for about 5 seconds.
Open your top and slowly pour in the remaining 3/4 cup oil. As soon as your last drop is in. You are done.
Easy peasy and oh so good. 🙂
