My boys love homemade chicken salad. I usually pack my 4 year old chicken salad for lunch. He loves shredded chicken, diced apples, and homemade mayonnaise all mixed together. A nutritious mayonnaise adds enzymes, nutrients, and probiotics to your meal. Not such a bad condiment after all!
I have tried a few and this one is my favorite. This recipe is from The Healthy Home Economist and can be found here.
1 whole egg, and a 2nd yolk
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice (fresh)
sea salt (a big pinch)
1 Tbsp of cultured whey (optional)
1/2 cup Organic Olive Oil (or sesame, coconut, ghee)
1/2 cup Organic Sesame oil (or olive,coconut, ghee)
Start by washing your eggs in warm soapy water. Dry the eggs and crack one whole egg into a food processor (or blender). Take the other egg and use only the yolk and add it to the blender. Add the Dijon mustard, lemon juice, and sea salt. Add the cultured whey (which is optional), but adds several weeks of refrigerated shelf life to the Mayonnaise. Pulse food processor or blender to mix all the ingredients. Then add the oils slowly in a thin stream while pulsing the blender. Add them very slowly! And keep pulsing (on low) until the texture is perfect.
Voila~ a healthy, smooth, creamy mayonnaise.
