  • ½ teaspoon dry mustard

  • teaspoon cayenne pepper or 1/4 tsp. white pepper

  • 1 cup avocado or walnut oil, or extra-light tasting olive oil

Paleo Mayonnaise

  1. In a wide-mouth pint jar or 2-cup liquid measuring cup combine first five ingredients (through cayenne pepper). Slowly add oil. If necessary, let stand until oil separates from egg mixture.

  2. Using an immersion blender, hold blender against bottom of jar and blend 20 to 30 seconds. When mixture is nearly combined and thickened, move blender up and down while blending to incorporate any remaining oil. (Or in a medium bowl whisk together first five ingredients [through cayenne pepper]. Slowly add oil in a thin, steady stream, whisking constantly until combined and thickened.)

  3. Cover jar or transfer mayonnaise to an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator 3 to 5 days.
