      About the Recipe


      This olive oil mayo recipe is one of the easiest mayonnaise recipes that you can find, pinky-promise. This particular mayo goes well with so many different salads…

      If you master how to make it at home, you will never use store-bought mayo again. Especially if you are concerned about all those preservatives and other chemicals added to keep it well stored.

      You can make a bowl of homemade olive oil mayo and keep it in your fridge for 3 days. You just need some basic ingredients such as egg, lemon juice, vinegar, mustard of your choice, and… olive oil (although mayo is usually made with canola, sunflower, peanut or soybean oil).

      Note: I checked a few brands, and most of them use many preservatives, corn syrup, cornstarch, Xanthan Gum, Gellan Gum, etc. That’s why when you buy mayo in store, it can stay in the fridge for a long time.

      This olive oil mayo is a good base for many other sauces such as aioli, tartar sauce, rouille, and others. Even more, knowing how to make this recipe will help you prepare a bunch of other sauces, too. Some restaurants like to serve their mayo flavored – with mushrooms, red paprika, dill, basil, chives, chipotle, parsley, herb, curry, and many more. So if not this olive oil mayo, I like to make Truffle Mushroom Mayo – check it out.

      What type of oil to use?

      I use olive oil for this recipe because it is a very healthy oil type. Although your mayo is not going to be as thick as the one made with sunflower oil. The texture of the sunflower mayo is very thick, and the sauce is dense. Olive oil makes a little more “liquidy”, but still thick enough to spread on a sandwich or add to a salad.

      How much olive oil do I need?

      If you use one egg, you need one 1 cup of olive oil. If you use two eggs, you will need more olive oil to thicken the sauce. See the step-by-step photos.

      Do I need fresh lemon juice?

      No, you can use bottled lemon juice or any other sour liquid such as white wine vinegar, red wine vinegar, or champagne vinegar. I haven’t tested this recipe with balsamic vinegar, so I am not including it into the recommendations.

      What kind of mustard to use?

      You can use any type of mustard. I used Dijon mustard in this recipe.

      How much time do I need to make olive oil mayo?

      This recipe requires only 5 minutes.

      How many days can olive oil mayo be stored in the fridge?

      You can store your olive oil mayo in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.
