Also known as the post that will make my friend Anne hurl. Girl hates mayo like Tony Ja hates people who steal his deity and/or elephants. Tony Ja reference anyone? Come on, Tony Ja is the man! He'd like my mayo. Stop judging me for being the weird chick who loves parkour movies. Forget the Tony Ja reference...shall we get to the mayo?
I actually am not a mayo fan either. I would never elect to put it on a sandwich, but I will use a little for coleslaw or chicken salad. Troy however; big mayo lover. Ever read the ingredients on a mayo container? Double yuck.
This mayo recipe has probably had more iterations than DW-40 (it took the people who made it 40 tries before finding the current recipe...), but I've finally found one that makes Troy say "this tastes like Best Foods" (Hellman's to my East Coast readers). I'm still indifferent to it, but the mayo fiend will eat it.
1 large egg and 2 egg yolks; room temp
1/2 tsp of dijon mustard
1/4 tsp of sea salt
1.5 tsp of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice (I use ACV)
2/3 cup of melted coconut oil
2/3 cup of walnut oil
1/4 cup of olive oil
2-3 TBSP whey
Because coconut oil is is solid below 76 degrees, this will make a thicker mayo once it's been put in the fridge. The olive and walnut oil make it spreadable. The mixture of oils is essential to not making this taste like a pile of crap. I've tried other recipes with all olive oil, and it turned in to a hot mess.
I've shared this with the peeps over at Simple Lives Thursdays.
