Olive Oil Mayo

First off let me just say the Marinated Feta didn't last long.  I have eaten every bit of it! Well I did give three jars away.  It is so delicious!

Yesterday I met with our local weight support group and shared with them God's Diet.  There are lots of variations out there but I feel like if God made it then eat it.

This picture pretty much sums up how I feel about eating.  God's diet to me is way more than a diet it is a way of living.


So this afternoon I decided to make this Olive Oil Mayo recipe out of an e-cookbook I have called Well Fed, it is a Paleo cookbook.  I do not follow a Paleo diet but there are some really great recipes in this that fit into God's Diet.

This mayo is so easy to make and it tastes great! It doesn't have any of the "CRAP" store bought mayonnaise has.

Ingredients:

1 large egg
2 T lemon juice
1/4 cup plus 1 cup light olive oil (not extra virgin!)
1/2 t dry mustard
1/2 t salt

Directions:

In a blender of food processor break the egg and add the lemon juice.  Put the lid on your appliance and let it set until it reached room temperature, at least 30 minutes.  Once they are at room temperature you are ready to add the mustard, salt and 1/4 cup of oil.  Blend until combined.  Now if the fun part of emulsifying.  Slowly stream a thin drizzle of the remaining 1 cup of oil into your processor.  DO NOT DUMP it in all at once.  Once you have all the oil in you will notice a thick white mayo has magically formed.

I decided after I made this mayo I should try it out so I made my mothers delicious egg salad.  Sam even liked it so it must be good.

Happy Eating!
