Basic Mayonnaise

The world has about as many mayonnaise recipes as it does air, so let’s add another to the mix! 😉

A year ago my doctor put me on a very strict elimination diet, and I wasn’t able to have any yeast. I had been making my own mayonnaise to avoid the soybean oil, but I had to find a new recipe because they all called for vinegar, which contains yeast. I was also frustrated that lots of times my mayonnaise wouldn’t emulsify properly.

I learned that all that’s really required to make mayonnaise is simply an egg and oil. You don’t need vinegar or any acidic substance, and you don’t need any spices.

This is a really great base for all types of paleo or Whole30 condiments. You may want to readjust the salt and spices depending on what you’re using it for, but it’s great as is for sandwiches and tuna salads.

Since I switched to a super basic mayonnaise recipe, I’ve never EVER had problems getting it to emulsify! There’s also no need to let the egg come to room temperature. This one’s as easy as it gets!
