Buffalo Chicken Salad with Homemade Mayo

Image

To make Homemade Mayo:

1 egg

½ cup olive oil

1 tbsp. lemon juice

1 tsp. Dijon mustard

Sea salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Put all the ingredients EXCEPT for the olive oil in a blender. Blend for 30 seconds on low.
  2. Pour 2 tbsp. of the olive oil at a time into the blender and mix for 30 seconds each time. (This is an important step because it needs to emulsify).
  3. You will repeat this step 4 times because there is 8 tbsp. in ½ cup of olive oil. Make sure you allow 30 seconds to mix between adding more olive oil. (It should start to thicken)
  4. Once the mayo has thickened, place in a bowl.

(This makes 9 servings or 9 tbsp.)
