This is the easiest, most delicious addition to any meal you can make! Melissa Joulwan’s blog – The Clothes Make The Girl is excellent, visit her page to watch her video on how to make this beautiful mayo.
1/4 cup and 1 cup (light, mild tasting olive oil not extra virgin)
2 tbs lemon juice @ room temperature
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard (mustard powder)
Leave the egg and lemon out of the fridge for 4 hours before making this recipe, this is an important step!
Place the egg and lemon juice in a blender or food processor. Let them sit together for 30-60 minutes. Add the mustard, salt and 1/4 cup of olive oil. Whirl until well mixed-about 20-30 seconds.
The next important step! While the blender is going, very slowly drizzle the skinniest amount of olive oil you can manage and still have movement in the oil. This takes about 3 minutes. Breathe, relax and drizzle slowly. Resist the temptation to dump the oil at the end, continue to slowly drizzle, your patience will be rewarded!
Did your mayo not quite work? No need to despair! It will still taste amazing and you can use it like a hollandaise or salad dressing!
