How is everyone doing with those Thanksgiving leftovers? Are you tired of turkey and stuffing yet?
My FAV thing to do with leftover turkey is to make turkey salad (used to be sandwiches back in the day) and have it with some leftover paleo rolls or wrapped in lettuce boats! I figured you should be able to enjoy this tradition also, so I'm sharing my Paleo Mayo recipe with you!!
This. Mayo. Is. The. Bomb. Dot. Com.
Seriously it is SO much better then that crap laden store bought junk in a jar. AND it's actually good for you!!! Oh happy day!!!!! I have always loved mayo and creating this recipe years ago was honestly a lifesaver for me when it came to making the paleo transition. You see, the more you can make your new paleo food resemble and taste like your old non-paleo favorites, the more quickly you forget that you've cut any food groups out in the first place!
Adding some mayo to make REAL tuna salad instead of just dry tuna and a burger with some mayo in my lettuce wrap instead of dry with only mustard makes a world of difference. It really does. And for this condiment lover (aka ME) it was a straight game changer.
With all that being said.... I've got a doozie for yah! I live streamed myself making Paleo Mayo on my Facebook page like 8 months ago and it was a hit! I'm a huge fan of this recipe in general and I've been making it for years! It's seriously very quick and easy AND extremely hard to screw up. Which is good news in my book!
Did I mention that it's also crazy freaking delicious!? Well it is and I want you to experience it! Here's the video of my live streaming below:
Can you believe I actually started this post 8 MONTHS ago when I first made that live stream!? Holy wow I used to be inconsistent with typing up recipes and getting blog posts up... So much has changed since then. Thank goodness that's gotten better though huh!?
Alrightly then, here's the recipe in writing!
NOTE: You will need an immersion blender & a wide mouthed glass jar in order to make this recipe easily! linked are the ones I use in this recipe.
Easy Homemade Paleo Mayo
5 minute prep time
1 Free Range Egg (preferably organic)
1 Cup Avocado Oil (I do not recommend using ANY other oil in the recipe)
1 tbsp Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice (about 1/2 of a lemon)
1 tsp Ground mustard
1/2 tsp Himalayan Pink Salt
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Oregano
Crack egg into a wide mouthed glass mason jar. Pour in 1 cup of avocado oil. Next squeeze lemon juice directly into jar. Make sure the lemon juice sinks before you move onto the next step.
Add seasonings to taste but make sure to add the salt & ground mustard or the taste will be a bit bland and off. I recommend using all the seasonings for a truly delicious mayo.
Put your IMMERSION BLENDER into the jar flush against the bottom of the glass. Turn on the immersion blender and don't move it from the bottom of the jar for 10-20 seconds. After that you can move the blender around until everything is completely combined.
Store in the fridge for up to 7 days. (I have kept mine for longer, but just to be safe.)
This mayo is not only easy but it's good on just about any and everything. I love to make tuna salad, chicken salad, egg salad, burgers, and so many other great dishes with this mayo! It's also very delicious as a dip with chips or cucumbers so keep that in mind!
It's a great source of healthy fats & protein too, so there don't need to be any guilt behind eating this creamy deliciousness!
Make sure to share your pictures or videos of making this mayo and tag @thepaleoballerina so I can see them! ! It's a pretty magical process so I'd love to see your experience with it!

Happy mayo making everyone!
