Eating a chicken salad sandwich while on a diet is virtually unheard of…and we absolutely love chicken salad! So once we learned how to make our own whole 30 compliant olive oil mayo…it opened up a whole new world of possibilities for many of our favorites. So today we are sharing the details for how we created this yummy dish… See Mayo and Salad recipe below πŸ™‚

1 egg (room temperature)

mix with hand mixer or we use a blender

Add in lemon juice to taste ( I dont really measure just squeeze in a little at a time, then taste at the end before I add in any more) typically its 1 tsp.

Add 1/2 tsp dry mustard powder

add in 1/2 tsp salt

pepper to taste (optional)

garlic 1/4 tsp Β or a couple shakes (optional) we like garlic in everything πŸ™‚

then blend in 1/2-3/4 C light olive oil, mix until thick. (tip..start with 1/4 cup blending it completely…then another 1/4 cup and so on…you may only need a 1/2 cup)

Once your mayo is made this can be used in just about any type of dressing, sauce, etc.
