Paleo Mayo by Nom Nom Paleo (Michelle Tam)

Ingredients:

  • 1 large egg yolk
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 ½ teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • ¾ cup macadamia nut oil or avocado oil

**All ingredients should be at room temperature**

“Here’s how I made it: I put all the ingredients except the oil in a large bowl and whisked until the yolk thickened and the color brightened (around 30 seconds). I added ¼ cup of the oil in a slow steady stream while I whisked vigorously (~1 minute). To keep my bowl in place, I put it on a rubber mat and tied a towel around the base. If there’s someone else in the house, recruit him or her to slowly pour in the oil while you whisk.

After the oil is incorporated, I slowly added the second ¼ cup of oil and incorporated it the same way as the first (~30 seconds). I added the last ¼ cup of oil all at once (per the instructions) and whisked it to emulsify the mayo completely.”
