Great Recipe for super easy homemade lowfat mayo. Try the variations for a fun change.
- 1 large egg (use a higher omega-3 brand, if available)
- 1 tablespoon champagne vinegar or 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1⁄4 teaspoon honey (granulated sugar can be substituted)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon white pepper (black pepper can be substituted)
- 1⁄2 cup canola oil (or olive oil)
- 6 tablespoons nonfat sour cream (light sour cream can be substituted)
- In this exact order, add the egg, vinegar or lemon juice, salt, mustard, honey, pepper and oil to the immersion blender cup. Let the ingredients sit for one minute, as the egg yolk settles to the bottom.
- Place the immersion blender into the cup and starting slowly pulsing the mixture. In a few seconds you will see the mayo begin to form at the bottom. You can move the immersion lightly up and down to finish. The whole process should take no more than one minute. Add the sour cream. Mix again briefly. Scrape mayonnaise into a container; cover tightly and store in refrigerator for up to one week.

I liked this but found without the variations, it just didn't taste... right. I made the garlic and the dijonaise ones and found them much better and would make again. Thanks! Made for PAC Spring '13
