I have tried quite a few paleo mayo recipes and not only are they tricky to get right, every one has tasted worse than the next. Making this one in my Blendtec Twister jar is ridiculously quick, fail safe and delicious!
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 3/4 cup plain olive oil (not virgin or extra virgin!)
Tip: Selecting a plain olive oil is very important. Virgin and Extra Virgin olive oils have a much stronger taste to them and it tends to create a very unpleasant after taste to the mayo!
Using a blender on medium low speed (2 on Blendtec, using the Twister Jar) blend the egg yolks, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard and salt for 15 seconds. Turn speed down to low (1 on Blendtec) and leave blade running.
While blade is running on low, pour in the olive oil. I use a Twister Jar on my Blendtec blender, and pretty much pour the oil in as quickly as I can to make sure I get it all in before the mayo is done. Depending on your blender this should happen within seconds and your mayo is done!
