Love mayo, but hate drizzling the oil? Want to make mayo all the time, but just the thought of how much time it takes exhausts you? Well, I have a solution with today's Easiest Minute Mayo. You are going to love this recipe!
Some of y'all know that I am a major homemade mayo fan! Like, I looooooooooooooooove it! A few years ago, I learned all about homemade mayo and came up with a Coconut and Avocado Oil Mayo recipe that was perfect for my tastebuds. But, it still required drizzling in the oil which frankly, I hated. Thankfully my friend (and 20 Dishes co-founder) Orleatha introduced me to making mayo with an immersion blender.
I have yet to find a commercial brand of mayo that tastes as good as my homemade mayo (and one that has clean ingredients). The only one that comes close is Coconaise (which you can find on Amazon here). Coconaise is really tasty, but it is expensive so it is a once-in-a-rare-while treat for me. But, if you are just not into making your own mayo and want one that is clean, tastes good, and won't go rancid quickly, then Coconaise is a great contender!
Thankfully, I can easily make my own mayo at home anytime I want, and in only a minute or so with this new recipe. Not only is it easy, but it's fully customizable too. The flavor of the plain mayo is outstanding, but you can easily jazz it up with some herbs and spices for something extra special. Here's some ideas:
- Add 1/2 teaspoon of my homemade Cajun seasoning blend for a spicy kick.
- Add 1/4 teaspoon of garlic and 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder for a flavor power punch.
- Fold in oven roasted garlic (finely chopped) for a wonderful garlic aioli (do this after the mayo is made and the garlic is cooled).
- Fold in finely chopped herbs (like dill, basil, parsley, cilantro, tarragon, etc.) for a wonderful herb spread (do this after the mayo is made).
- Use it as the base to make my ridiculously good Lemon Artichoke Mayo.
I love mayo on pretty much anything. I use it on sandwiches and lettuce wraps. I put it as a base to different salad dressings. I eat it on tacos (try my Easiest Crock Pot Taco Meat recipe) and these Skirt Steak Fajitas (since I can't do sour cream and cheese). I even have been known to put it on eggs along with my favorite hot sauce… that last one may be a little weird sounding, but don't knock it 'till you try it! 😉

Did you know that the concept for mayonnaise was invented in 1756? According to The Nibble's article on the history of mayonnaise:
While stories of the provenance of almost any food will vary, the leading belief is that the concept for the original mayonnaise sauce was brought back to France in 1756 from Mahón, a city on Minorca in the Balearic Islands, off the northeast coast of Spain. What became one of the world’s favorite condiments was created for a victory banquet to celebrate the capture of Mahón by forces under Louis-François-Armand de Vignerot du Plessis, duc de Richelieu (1696-1788), a marshal of France and a grandnephew of Cardinal Richelieu.
So mayo's been around awhile! Bet they'd love today's immersion blenders. Ready for the recipe? Let's dive in! My friend Orleatha was nice enough to share her recipe on video, but we have the printed version below too. Enjoy!

Easiest Minute Mayo :: Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Paleo
Makes a little over 1 cup. The key to proper emulsion is to ensure that all of your ingredients are at room temperature.
- 1 cup avocado oil
- 1 egg (at room temperature)
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp mustard powder
- 2 tsp apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice
- Make sure all of your ingredients are at room temperature. If they are not, they will not properly emulsify.
- Place all ingredients in a small, wide-mouthed jar.
- Place your immersion blender at the bottom of the jar.
- Start to blend, leaving your immersion blender at the bottom of the jar.
- When the mixture has emulsified about 3/4 of the way up the jar, very slowly pull your immersion blender up towards the top. This will grab the last little bit of oil on the surface.
- Seal tightly and store in the fridge for up to a week.
