Basic Mayo & Ranch Dressing

January 26, 2016

It's high time I share this recipe, especially since I make it at least every other week. 

Homemade Mayo & Ranch Dressing. 

It's absolutely divine, and I'm not joking when I say that homemade mayo has ruined me. The store bought stuff just doesn't compare. 

So here's both recipes, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. 


1/2 cup light tasting olive oil
1 large egg
3 tsp lemon juice
dash of salt & pepper
dash of garlic powder
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard

To make with an immersion blender - place all ingredients in a large jar or cup and turn blender on high, slowly bringing the blender to the top of the mixture until completely combined into mayonnaise. 

Blender or food processor - place all ingredients except olive oil in the blender or food processor, while place on high speed slowly drizzle in the oil. 

Now for the ranch. 

I'm telling you I live off of this stuff when I'm on a Whole30. The fat makes meals so much more filling, at least for this nursing mother.
