I recently came across a great recipe on Healthfoodlover.com and decided to try it out today. It can be whipped up quickly and lasts for a week in a sealed container in the fridge. I served mine over eggs and toast (as suggested by Healthfoodlover), but I think it might also be good over steamed vegetables (such as asparagus) or used as a basic salad dressing.

The ingredients for this recipe are listed below:

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 Tsp lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup flaxseed oil
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 lime juiced extra (I just substituted more bottled lime juice)
  • 1/2 Tsp ground sea salt
  • Ground pepper for seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chopped herbs (such as thyme, basil, or oregano)

To start, mix the 2 Tsp lime juice and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl. Set this aside, and mix the egg yolk and salt in a larger bowl. Add half of the cider/lime juice mixture and stir well. Next, use a whisk to stir while very slowly adding in the oils. Stirring in the oils slowly helps with the emulsion of the mayo.

Once all of the oil is stirred in, add the rest of the lime juice/vinegar as well as the combination of herbs of your choice. Use salt and pepper to taste and serve or refrigerate.
