Don’t Hold the Mayo!

Traditional commercially prepared mayonnaise contains high levels of omega 6 oils which as we know lead to many disease states.  Hellman’s mayonnaise gets a C- score on the Fooducate website because of the GMO production.  Even Trader Joe’s mayonnaise which is non-GMO still contains chemicals and natural flavorings.  I stumbled upon this homemade mayo recipe in Mark Sisson’s , The Primal Blueprint Cookbook.

Mayonnaise

Ingredients:

1 whole egg or 2 egg yolks (best to get organic/pastured if possible)

2-3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar

1 tsp of Dijon mustard

Dash of paprika

Pinch of salt

3/4 -1 cup pure olive oil (use refined or light olive oil)

Directions—

Whisk the ingredients together and drizzle in the oil with a hand-held whisk

Voila!!! 

Ranch Dressing

1 cup homemade mayonnaise (as above)

1 cup cultured buttermilk

1 tablespoon finely chopped green onions or chives

1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

1 tablespoon finely minced onion

1 small clove garlic, minced

dash of paprika

dash of cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Whisk together and enjoy—store in a tightly covered jar in the refrigerator
