I’ve have tried countless mayo recipes, especially since I’ve gone lower carb and paleo. They are always tons of work. I used tons of kitchen appliances and I’ve always found the best way to do mayo is to whisk it by hand. But who has time for that? So let’s use some foodjitsu here and make things a little more efficient. All you need is an egg yolk, dijon mustard, coconut vinegar, lemon juice and avocado oil and you can enjoy a thick tasty mayonnaise. Enjoy and I’ll see you in the kitchen!
