I love mayonnaise.
When I used to eat sandwiches at Subway, Quiznos, etc., I always asked for extra mayo… and it was never enough.
When I started eating Paleo, I was SO sad when I learned that popular mayonnaise brands in the grocery store were not compliant. Soybean oil, sugar, BLEH!
I now make my own mayonnaise… and guess what? It’s better than anything you can buy in the store! You only need 6 ingredients to make your own mayonnaise and it comes together pretty quickly (less than 5 minutes!).
A wide mouth mason jar and stick/immersion blender help make this whole process so easy. I use the Cuisinart Smart Stick. Click here to purchase one for only $26.49*

You will need extra light olive oil, a large egg, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice (fresh-squeezed is best!), salt, and pepper. That’s it! It is important to use a room temperature egg. If you forget to take your egg out of the refrigerator, you can run the egg under warm water for a few minutes 🙂
Start by placing the egg, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a mason jar.
Blend until combined.
Keep your stick blender in the jar running, and slowly drizzle the oil in until it emulsifies. Move your stick blender up and down in the jar until thick.
Store your mayo in the fridge for up to one week. Enjoy! 🙂
