Homemade Olive Oil Mayo

Homemade Olive Oil Mayonnaise

Servings 1 cup
Author Brandon Matzek

Ingredients

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup olive oil (not extra virgin)
  • Kosher salt, to taste

Instructions

  1. Place egg yolk, lemon juice, water and mustard in a narrow, tall container. I used a Weck jar. Pour over olive oil, then let the contents settle for a moment.
  2. Using an immersion blender, process until the mayo starts to form. Once you start seeing mayo, gently move the blender up and down. Continue until all oil is emulsified. The texture will be thick.
  3. Season to taste with kosher salt and store in the refrigerator for up to several weeks.
