Mayonnaise for your Potato Salad and Summer Sandwiches

Most people think potato salad is bad for you, and rightly so if you buy it from the store or use store bought highly processed mayonnaise to make it. However, sans the dressing, potato salad is usually made with a bunch of delicious healthy vegetables and herbs. When combined with homemade mayo and organic whole ingredients, you actually have a very nutritious and absolutely delicious recipe. So, is it hard to do? Not at all. My homemade mayo recipe has only 5 ingredients and takes 5 minutes to make.

Homemade Organic Mayonnaise Recipe


1 large organic egg yolk

1/4 cup organic grapeseed oil

1/2 teaspoon fresh squeezed organic lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon white vinegar

1/4 teaspoon organic ground mustard

Pinch sea salt

Paprika to garnish

Combine all the ingredients except the oil in a glass Pyrex measuring cup (I use the 4 cup size). Using a fork, whisk the ingredients together until blended, about a minute. Using a hand held blender, blend the ingredients together in the measuring cup while slowly adding the oil, about 3-4 minutes. I like to use the small Pyrex container because it is tight and everything blends at once. When mayo is thick, use a spatula to place it in a serving or storing container. Garnish with paprika and use as you would any other mayonnaise.
