Homemade Mayo

My daughter-in-law sent me a recipe for homemade mayo that her good friend makes all the time. It is so simple, especially if you have an immersion blender.

1 cup oil (I used grape seed oil--you could use light olive oil-avocado oil, etc)
1 egg
1 T fresh lemon juice
1/4 t dry mustard

In small bowl, blend the egg, lemon juice, and mustard and then slowly trickle in the oil. It will be begin to thicken and before you know it the mixture has emulsified and voila! you have mayo!

I had made a crockpot chicken the other day, so I had some nice leftovers in the fridge. I added celery, onion and my homemade mayo and whipped up a nice chicken salad. Put that on the bed of greens, cukes, and cherry tomatoes and threw on some toasted pecans for good measure.
